The year is 1933. When the robot emissary Elbee-Dee-Oh disappears in deep space, it's up to Molly Sloan to rescue him. At that same time, and unbeknownst to her, her former fiance Dr. Lawrence Webster has arrived on Robonovia, the Cerebretron is malfunctioning, Timmy has only just begun to master his telekinetic powers, a sinister robot named Alphatron is up to something terribly nefarious and the Soviet spy Natasha Zorokov has followed Dr. Webster through the Galactascope. Will it all get sorted out or is there another, more evil, thread to this complex tapestry? Onstage, three actors, one sound-effects artist and a pianist provide the voices, sounds and music for more than 1,250 hand-drawn, full-color, blow-your-mind comic book images as they are projected on a screen, telling the larger-than-life story. Also see Book 1: Target Earth at 3 p.m. Plan to join the performers between performances for the Out-Of-This-World Feast. Feast: $26/person.
