Page Series event brings graphic novel to life

WINONA, Minn. — Science-fiction, radio play drama, and a graphic novel combine as Robot Planet brings “Intergalactic Nemesis” to the Saint Mary’s University Page stage Friday, Sept. 12, at 7:30 p.m.

Using the sound effects of radio drama, super-sized projections of a graphic novel, a live keyboard player, and live actors playing various parts, the story unfolds. The premise is simple: a period adventure story (with no small share of laughs) featuring Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott face the most serious threat Earth has ever known: an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.

Appropriate for all ages, this show will have gamers, science fiction fans, radio drama fans, and people just looking for an entertaining evening of adventure and fun on the edge of their seats, shouting for more.

Tickets for this Page Series production are $27 for adults, $24 for seniors and students and are available at the box office, 507-457-1715, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m Monday through Friday or online at
