For Immediate Release
Sci-fi spoof premieres at the KC Fringe Festival
Rex Dexter of Mars combines comic book characters, topical comedy and out of this world adventure in an epic radio play.
KANSAS CITY, MO – Take one part Guardians of the Galaxy, one part Monty Python, add a pinch of Buck Rogers, stir in some topical comedy – and the result is Rex Dexter of Mars, a new radio theatre production by Right Between the Ears, premiering July 21 at the 2018 KC Fringe Festival.
Written by Darrell Brogdon, Rex Dexter of Mars is based on a forgotten comic book character created in 1939 by Dick Briefer. For this 2018 re-imagination, interplanetary adventurer Rex Dexter – the first human born on Mars – is summoned to save the Earth from a runaway planet. Along the way Rex and his Martian gal pal Cynda tangle with mad scientists, killer robots, giant blobs, exploding planets and Donald Trump.
Staged as an episode of a 1930s radio serial, Rex Dexter of Mars will feature live sound effects – from squishy blob sounds to ray guns – and a symphonic score. The cast includes Michael Quentin Foster, Brie Henderson, David Martin, Jason Miller and Jerry Nevins. Sound effects will be performed on stage by Mary Ellen Kriegh.
