The Chicago Park District in collaboration with the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events is offering the interdisciplinary Classics in the Parks series this fall featuring five local companies in an eclectic interpretation of classical performances. 

This re-creation of Orson Welles' radio production of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds will feature live music and Foley artists.  It also coincides with the 75th anniversary of the original broadcast, infamous for convincing people that Martians were invading.  The mission of The Gift is to tell great stories onstage with honesty and simplicity.

Recommended for audience members 6 years old and over.
