For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center presents The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel Book Two: Robot Planet Rising on Friday, January 17 at 7:30 p.m.

“Last season we saw a whole new form of theatre with the live-action graphic novel, The Intergalactic Nemesis, Book One: Target Earth,” said PAC Manager Lee Dombroski. “Now we present the sequel. Original comic-book artwork is projected panel-by-panel on a two-story-high video screen while three actors voice all of the characters, one performer creates all of the sound effects, and a keyboardist performs the score. LIVE.

“The year is 1933. When the robot emissary Elbee-Dee-Oh disappears in deep space, it’s up to Molly Sloan to rescue him,” Dombroski added. “But it’s not that simple. Because at the same time, and unbeknownst to her, her former fiancé Dr. Lawrence Webster has miraculously 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 duplicitous Soviet spy Natasha Zorokov has followed Dr. Webster through the Galactascope. Will it all get sorted out? There's only one way to find out!”

Tickets are reserved seating and on sale for $25 General, $20 Discount and $12 UH Hilo/HawCC students and children, up to age 17. Tickets are available by calling the UH Hilo Box Office at 932-7490 or ordering online at
