The YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard will revive the original broadcast of Orson Welles’s War of the Worlds with its Theatre of the Mind event on Saturday, Oct. 26 beginning at 5 p.m. The radio broadcast that sparked a mass outcry will be rebroadcast and a pasta dinner will be served. The event is part of an initiative to bring Island elders and teens together. The one-hour radio play can be heard at the Base at Alex’s Place at the YMCA across from the regional high school in Oak Bluffs. For more information, call 508-696-7171 or visit
