"The Intergalactic Nemesis" is a comedic adventure story that has taken the form of a PBS-produced YouTube series, audio dramas, an audio podcast, graphic novels, and a multi-installment theatrical production. On Friday, October 30, Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Avenue) will present "Target Earth," part one of the live-action graphic novel, which introduces us to three fearless heroes who set out to save humanity from an evil, alien force.
Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott bravely face the impending invasion of 1930's Earth by sludge monsters. The show combines audio drama and comic book with big-screen artwork, actors, a Foley artist creating hundreds of sounds, and a pianist.
The performance will take place at 8 p.m. in Callahan Theater. Single tickets are $15-$35. To purchase, call 389-2170 or visit artscenter.naz.edu. Ticket holders may attend a free pre-performance graphic illustration workshop at 6 p.m. (pre-registration is required, call 389-2170). A pre-performance lecture with members of the company will be offered at 7 p.m. in the Peace Theater (room A14), located in the lower level of the Arts Center. Food trucks will be parked in the Arts Center parking lot (Lot A) prior to the start of this show.
