Intergalactic Nemesis Saturday at Rozsa

Intergalactic NemesisThe Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts presents the “Intergalactic Nemesis: Target Earth – a live-action graphic novel” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 26, 2016.

“Intergalactic Nemesis” is a hilarious all-ages science fiction adventure story set in 1933, and features three actors, a live sound effect artist, a piano and more than 1250 projected comic book panels in a retro radio-drama-extravaganza live on the Rozsa Center stage.

When “The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel” premiered, more than 2,100 people turned out. Shortly thereafter, it was featured on NPR and Conan O’Brien. Now, in its third touring season, the production has hit more than 80 venues around the U.S., U.K. and Canada, including a run at the New Victory Theatre on Broadway.

The story involves Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott facing the most serious threat Earth has ever known—an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.

Tickets are on sale now, $20 for adults, $10 for youth. No charge for Michigan Tech students via the Experience Tech Fee. Advance reserved seating is now available. Tickets are available by phone at 7-2073, online, in person at the Central Ticketing Office in the Student Development Complex or at the Rozsa Box Office the evening of the performance. Note the Rozsa Box Office only opens two hours prior to performances.
