Plan 9 From Outer Space
Date: April 16
Acting Out! and Cape Comic Con present Plan 9 from Outer Space!
Known by many to be "the worst movie ever made," Plan 9 tells the story of aliens who
are afraid that humanity will create a universe-killing doomsday device. In order to prevent
this, they decide to raise the dead to form an army to stop mankind.
The movie was SO bad that audiences could not take it seriously, and it has since garnered a cult
following for all of the wrong (and hilarious) reasons. Acting Out has brought this masterpiece
(?) to life in their stage adaptation, and will be performing it at Cape Comic Con on Saturday,
The show will begin at 6:30 at the Osage Centre, immediately following the close of Cape Comic Con for the day.
