Alien things coming to Banbury
A show inspired by B movies from the 1950s and jammed packed with silliness and mayhem can be seen at The Mill Arts Centre in Banbury next month.
The Thing That Came From Over There can be seen on Saturday April 1 and is described as a packed rollicking ride mixing paranoia, suspense and hilariously gruesome deaths.It’s 1912, and as renowned adventurers Scott and Amundsen have begun their race across Antarctica, meanwhile our more hapless explorer, Captain Reginald Scottt has ruined his chances in the competition by accidentally landing on the wrong side of the continent.As a dejected Scottt and his motley band of incompetent cohorts set up base camp as best they can, they are witness to a sudden nearby meteor crash. Deciding to investigate, for how are they to call themselves explorers if they fail to explore, they bravely set out towards the crash site – unaware of the danger that awaits not just them, but the whole of planet earth.What ancient evil lurks inside the crater? Will they ever learn the dark secret of the slimy fungus? And just what is the horrifying and mysterious fate, of those who encounter the parasitic space worms?Three actors play more than 15 roles in 85 minutes creating a frenetic performance full of shocks, spine tingling stillness, and blood curdling terror. Expect a show packed with comedy and thrills galore, audiences can expect visual delights, a supremely silly script, giant puppetry, and live music.The show starts 7.30pm and tickets cost Â£12.These can be booked by calling the box office on 01295 279002 or by visiting www.themillartscentre.co.uk.
