Capital Classics: Bringing professional, classical theatre to greater Hartford since 1991.

Don't miss "War of the Worlds" this Halloween!

The Martian invasion is coming this October 28–30 at at The Mark Twain House & Museum. Be sure to purchase your tickets for our radio-theatre performances of "War of the Worlds" — using the same 1938 radio script by Howard E. Koch that was performed by Orson Welles and the Mercury Theatre. Just like the days of the golden age of radio, our Company members use live sound effects, music, and their storytelling vocal skills to tell the story of an invasion of Earth by inhabitants of Mars.
