Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds


Based on HG Wells’ dark Victorian tale, the production remains a favourite to millions around the world, exciting audiences of all ages.

In 2006, TWOTW was already considered a cutting-edge production with six trucks filled to the brim. By 2022, which marks 16 years of live touring, the production will be up to 12 trucks, with a host of ingredients and special effects to challenge and excite the senses.

In addition to a stellar cast (still to be announced), audiences can expect to see Liam Neeson in 3D holography as journalist George Herbert and the 35-foot-tall Martian Fighting Machine firing real flame Heat Rays, along with the nine-piece Black Smoke Band and ULLAdubULLA symphonic string orchestra.

Some of the new updates and additions include a giant arched bridge running from the lip of the stage out over the audience to the front of house desk, three panoramic screens with two hours of cutting-edge CGI and the incineration of a cast member in full view of the audience.

There will also be surround sound, lighting, pyrotechnics and otherworldly special effects – plus a ground-breaking levitation effect, the release of deadly black smoke from the Martian Fighting Machine and The War Of The Worlds’ author himself, HG Wells, appearing in sight and sound.
