Far Out, which features usic by Brian Breen and lyrics by Michael Chartier, is "a whacky and whimsical musical valentine to all those grade B-sci-fi-alien-invasion movies Hollywood made in the 1950's," according to press notes. "It's an intergalactic clash of worlds when the alien Supreme Leader—a singing-eyeball-diva (with the legs and voice of Tina Turner)—and her entourage encounter an atomic-age desert town in midst of the cold war, its local mad scientist, small town sheriff, extreme-army Colonel, and Sock Hop-obsessed teens, not to mention a pair of (literally) star-crossed young lovers."
The creative team also includes choreographer Justin Boccitto, musical director Brian Taylor and costume designer Chasity Neutze.
Show times are Aug. 22 at 7:30 PM, Aug. 26 at 8 PM, Aug. 27 at 4:15 PM, Aug. 29 at 5 PM and Aug. 30 at 2:45 PM.
