Tickets are still available for LeTourneau University’s presentation of "The Intergalactic Nemesis," a hilarious theatrical production of a 1930s sci-fi thriller radio program. The performance will be at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, April 12, in the S. E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave.
Salvage Vanguard Theater of Austin, Texas, will present the production which follows the story of a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and her intrepid assistant who are uncovering a big story when a mysterious stranger saves their lives. Their story takes a new twist and is sure to transport the audience through time and space. The play demonstrates sound effects as professional Foley artists display their talents and timing. As in any old fashioned radio show, there will be some surprises and lots of audience participation.
Tickets are $31, $24 or $17 and can be purchased at the university’s box office at (903) 233-3080 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, online at www.BelcherCenter.com, or at the door. A 10% discount applies for groups of 10 or more.
“This show will be loads of fun because the power of the show is in the audience’s imagination,” said Cynthia Hellen, Belcher Center director. “While there is plenty to watch on stage, this show takes you into the world of radio, with music, sound effects and imagination. You can bring your kids and your grandmother and all have a really fun time.”
