Relish characteristic 1950s-style musical comedy that has taken audiences by storm at St. Luke’s Theatre this year. With authorised film clips from iconic sci-fi movies from the mid-20th century like ‘Brain from Planet Arous’, ‘Plan 9 From Outer Space’, and many more, It Came From Beyond is sure to leave you clutching your sides with laughter and humming its memorable tunes all the way back from the theatre.

Why Watch It Came From Beyond

If you are a fan of classic comic books of the 20th century, you will love this musical. Cornell Christianson, the writer of the musical, has truly created a masterpiece musical in It Came From Beyond. The show's award-winning producers, John Lant and Edmund Gaynes, have many successful musicals under their belt, and so, it comes as no surprise that It Came From Beyond is one of the top shows to grace the stage this year. With songs that resonate perfectly with the era that it represents, the show does an incredible job of portraying the fears of a communist attack in the America of the 1950s.

Comedies often suffer from a lack of character and plot development, but this is exactly where It Came From Beyond stands out! This is a special show that masterfully blends just the right amount of comedy with a strong plot and brilliantly developed characters. The mellow humour makes this musical suitable for viewers of all ages.

The Story

It Came From Beyond is set in the year 1959. It begins with a typical geeky high school senior named Harold who is madly in love with his classmate, Becky. Unfortunately for Harold, the dashing Steve intrudes and seems to be taking Becky away from him. When Mr. Fielding, the hard-nosed science teacher, asks Steve and Harold to work on the same project together, things begin to heat up. The show effortlessly switches between the story in the comic book that Harold is reading and Harold’s own world. Incidentally, the name of this new comic is the same as the name of the musical, It Came From Beyond. In the comic, an alien spaceship disguised as an asteroid lands on Earth and spurs a communist colonel to go berserk. The show draws parallels between an astronomer trying to find the secret to defeating the aliens in the comic and Harold seeking a similar secret to save the girl that he loves in high school. Will the two heroes find what they are looking for?

Critics Reviews

"Jim Blanchette’s direction is solid and makes the presentation smoothly watchable."
- TheatreScene.Net

"A true highlight of the show is the out-of-this-world retro-style choreography by Mark Blowers... It Came from Beyond is a lively send-up of the genre and the socio-political climate of the decade."
- DC Metro Theatre Arts
