    MORRISTOWN — Experience a graphic novel come to life, live on stage with The Intergalactic Nemesis on Sunday, Jan. 29, at 7 p.m. at the Mayo Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $27 and $37 per person. The year is 1933. The premise is simple: a period adventure story (with no small share of laughs) featuring Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott as they face the most serious threat Earth has ever known - an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon. The telling is what makes the experience of The Intergalactic Nemesis so incredibly unique: while three actors, one Foley artist, and one keyboardist perform all the voices, sound effects and music, more than 1,000 hand-drawn, full-color, hi-rez, blow-your-mind comic-book images blast from the screen, all performed live on stage. When The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel premiered in 2010, more than 2,100 people turned out. Now, in its inaugural touring season, the production hits 24 venues around the country. This is a one-of-a-kind, all-ages show. The Mayo Performing Arts Center is located at 100 South Street, Morristown. For tickets call l973-539-8008 or go to
