Off-Broadway Sci-Fi Fun!
Described by critics as the "next Rocky Horror Show", It Came From Beyond is a loving musical spoof of b-movies, full of invading aliens, chiselled jawed heroes, and stilted dialogue. The story centers on a lovesick high school geek who discovers an interplanetary secret hidden in a comic book, and an astronomer convinced that aliens are heading our way.
Featuring a main cast of five who each play two roles each, It Came From Beyond is dizzy family friendly fun, which also incorporates clips from old sci-fi classics, like Invaders from Mars and Ed Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space. This St Luke's staging is written by Cornell Christianson, while Norman E. Thalheimer and Stephen M. Schwartz provide the music and lyrics.
