Are you ready for some great fun? If you are, get your kids and come out to the Orpheum Theatre at 6:30pm on April 1, 2014 when Jason Neulander's graphic novel, The Intergalactic Nemesis comes to life in a show, where comic-meets -radio production.
In a release from the Orpheum Theatre, a synopsis explains this exciting show.
"The year is 1933. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Molly Sloan and her intrepid research assistant Timmy Mendez team up with a mysterious librarian from Flagstaff, Arizona, named Ben Wilcott. Together, they travel from Rumania to Scotland to the Alps to Tunis to the Robot Planet and finally to Imperial Zygon to defeat a terrible threat to the very future of humanity: an invading force of sludge-monsters from outer space known as the Zygonians. This one-of-a-kind theatrical experience mashes up radio drama with comic-books. Three actors, one Foley artist, and one musician perform all the voices and sound effects, while overhead an illustrated outer-space graphic novel unfolds on a giant screen. The Intergalactic Nemesis is a spectacle unlike any other, and it's for the kid in everyone."
Be sure to arrive early at the theatre, and take part in pre-show lobby activities in partnership with Chatterbox Audio Theatre and Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention. The Intergalactic Nemesis is recommended for ages 8 and up.
