Intergalactic Nemesis Book Two poster

Intergalactic Nemesis Book 2 Show Information

EVENT NAME:  THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS Live-Action Graphic Novel Book Two: Robot Planet Rising

VENUE: UHM Kennedy Theatre, 1770 East-West Rd. Honolulu, HI 96822  


DATES/TIMES: Sunday, January 19, 2014; 2:00pm

DESCRIPTION: THEY'RE BACK!!! Last season we presented a whole new form of theatre, the Live-Action Graphic Novel, with The Intergalactic Nemesis, Book One: Target Earth. Now, that production is in the midst of a multi-year world tour. They've been featured on NPR and CONAN. So it is with extreme pride that we present the sequel.

Just like for Book One, the creators have taken the artwork from an original comic-book story, removed the word balloons, and then project that art panel-by-panel on our two-story-high video screen while three actors voice all the characters, one performer creates all the sound-effects, and a keyboardist performs the score. LIVE.

This time Molly Sloan must rescue robot emissary Elbee-Dee-Oh who is lost in deep space, her former fiancé Dr. Lawrence Webster has miraculously arrived on Robonovia, the Cerebretron is malfunctioning, Timmy has only just begun to master his telekinetic powers and much more!
For the kid in everyone!

TICKETS: Tickets are available on line at, by phone at 944-2697, or visit any UH Ticket outlet (Stan Sheriff Center and the UH Mānoa Campus Center ticket office). Service charges apply. Advance sales end at midnight the day prior to the performance. At the door sales begin 1 hour before performance begins.

A production of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College. Part of a Performing Arts Presenters of Hawaii tour. Partial funding provided by the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Western States Arts Federation.
