For $35, you get two tickets for main-floor seating on Saturday, November 3, at 8 p.m. (up to a $90.40 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Originally conceived in the mid-1990s as a radio play by Texas theater mastermind Jason Neulander, The Intergalactic Nemesis thrusts audiences into a rip-roaring, multimedia adventure inspired by 1930s pulps. Lauded by Austinist as "totally nuts and a ton of fun," The Intergalactic Nemesis escapes the bonds of radio and launches on a national tour that brings the show to the big stage. Three actors narrate dozens of voices, including intrepid journalist Molly Sloane, her assistant Timmy Mendez, and evil scientist Mysterion, in a story that escorts onlookers from the Swiss Alps to the home world of the evil alien Zygons. Projections of comic-book panels tower above the voice actors, lending colorful visuals to their words while sound sorcerer and foley artist Buzz Moran provides atmosphere-building auditory effects and emits a drone that cancels out crinkling candy wrappers in the audience.
Clowes Memorial Hall
For the late Dr. George Henry Alexander Clowes, the most important things in life were science and the arts. The good doctor wanted to share this devotion with the Indianapolis community, so he devised and funded Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University. Completed in 1963, the hall shares Butler's gorgeous aesthetic with its arching stone façade and lush crimson interior, which has room for over 2,000 patrons. In addition to major touring productions and public speakers, Clowes Memorial Hall is also the home of the Indianapolis Opera, the Butler Ballet, and the Indy 500.
