Jody Smith heads up the lower town dramatists, who perform the Orson Welles' classic "War of the Worlds" at LowerTown Paducah's Etcetera Coffeehouse Saturday, October 26 at 7 pm. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the controversial radio drama that caused widespread panic on the night of its original broadcast. 

The lower town dramatists are dedicated to the preservation of theatre with unique performances and content you're unlikely to see anywhere else.

WKMS broadcasts the lower town version of "The War of the Worlds" on Halloween at noon and again at 7 p.m.
