WARP SPEED Set for MITF, 8/1-10
Imagine Little Shop of Horrors in Outer Space! In the tradition of Silence: the musical, Zombie Prom, and A Very Potter Musical comes producer Benjamin Simpson's production of Warp Speed: a Sci Fi Parody Musical, premiering at the 15th Anniversary Season of the Midtown International Theatre Festival.
Captain's Log: Dr. Ripley Von Evul finds herself aboard the Starship Interstellar and in the hot hands of flirty Captain Jerk. They are soon distracted, however, when Mr. Schlock intercepts a distress signal from another ship. In the attempt to save them, the eclectic crew is bathed in a radioactive field of low-budget special effects - and that's when things really get interesting! Find out more by joining the crew at their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/warpspeedthemusical, and their Twitter handle, @WarpSpeedParody.
The Crew of the Interstellar features Collin Kessler (Captain Jerk), Amanda Nicholas (Dr. Ripley Von Evul), Dylan Libby (Khanrad Badguy), Justin Ivan Brown* (Scotchy), Adrian Rifat (Mr. Schlock), Katie Quigley (Nurse Apple), John Edgar Moser (Dr. Tibia), Gregory Sullivan (Yerkov), DeAnne Stewart (Lt. Uvula), Zilong Pu (Mr. Hulu), Emily Schexnaydre (Nurse/Redshirt), and William Thomason (Hello!/Redshirt).
