The Intergalactic Nemesis
Inspired by Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars and the pulp serials of the 1930s, The Intergalactic Nemesis is an adventure story—with a twist: more than 1,250 original full-color comic-book images blasting from a two-story-high projection screen; actors voicing dozens of colorful characters; a Foley artist creating a plethora of unbelievable sound effects; and a keyboardist accenting every move with an original score.
Equal doses of humor and suspense, this production merges the thrills of a serial play with the vibrancy of a graphic novel to create an out-of-this-world adventure. Declared a “raucous romp” by the Austin Chronicle, this is a spectacle unlike any other and a show for the kid in everyone. In this performance, Book One: Target Earth, Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter Molly Sloan and her intrepid research assistant team up with a mysterious librarian to face the most terrible threat humanity has ever known: an invading force of sludge monsters from outer space known as the Zygonians.
For this performance, the Norton Center for the Arts in partnership with the Boyle County Public Library has been awarded an Arts Access Assistance Grant through a program of the Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, which is supported by state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
