Book One: Target Earth
To truly experience comic book heroes, look no further than The Intergalactic Nemesis: A Live-Action Graphic Novel. This one-of-a-kind theatrical experience mashes up classic radio drama with comic book art as three actors voice dozens of characters, one Foley artist creates hundreds of sound effects, and one keyboardist performs a score of thousands (yes, thousands!) of notes. Then... there... bigger than life on a two-story high screen, scores of full-color, hand-drawn, blow-your-mind comic book images tell a story inspired by all the best, from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars, and the pulp serials of the 1930s. The Intergalactic Nemesis is a spectacle unlike any other and it's for the kid in everyone. For age 8 and up.
Performance: Act I - 50 min.; Intermission - 20 min.; Act II - 40 min.
