Intergalactic Nemesis to bring unique story to the Clarion stage
Through the years, The Clarion at Brazosport College has brought a variety of entertainment to the Brazosport community. Be it concerts from some of the music industry’s most recognizable names, high-quality plays and productions or even the occasional comic showcase, the Clarion has always featured unique artists and original performances alike.
This tradition continues on March 28 when the Clarion hosts a show unlike any other: “The Intergalactic Nemesis – Book One: Target Earth.”
“The Intergalactic Nemesis” is a live-action graphic novel, a mash-up of a radio play and a comic book, but it’s the presentation that makes the experience so incredibly unique.
Three actors, one Foley artist and one keyboardist perform all the voices, sound effects and music, which include more than 1,000 hand-drawn, full-color, high-resolution, blow-your-mind, comic-book images that blast from the screen. And it’s all performed live.
The story’s premise is simple. It’s a period adventure story (with no small share of laughs) featuring Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott as they face the most serious threat Earth has ever known: an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.
“The Intergalactic Nemesis” has been featured on NPR, PBS, Conan O’Brien, the Wall Street Journaland dozens of other outlets. The New York Post called its limited run on Broadway “Great fun! (A) happily retro multimedia extravaganza,” while the Cleveland Examiner describes it as “pure theater magic.” The Austinist also recommends the show and describes it as “totally nuts and a ton of fun … Do not miss it.”
“The Intergalactic Nemesis - Book One: Target Earth” begins at 7:30 p.m. on March 28 at The Clarion at Brazosport College. Tickets are $35 for adults, $30 for seniors, BC Former Student Association members and BC employees and $10 for children.
