“It Came from Beyond – The Musical” St.Lukes Theatre

It Came From Beyond is a family friendly musical comedy described as Grease meets War of the Worlds with comic books, aliens, and 1950’s dancing.  It Came From Beyond opens Tuesday April 10, 2018 at St Lukes Theatre ( 308 W. 46 St.) To purchase tickets, click thru to TELECHARGE

It Came From Beyond takes place in a high school science classroom in 1959 and switches between two parallel stories. It centers on the nerdy, high school geek whose only chance to save the popular, beautiful girl that he loves, is to find the secret hidden in a new comic book called It Came From Beyond. In the parallel story, an astronomer seeks the same secret in order to stop an attack on Planet Earth from aliens from outer space.

The show has licensed film clips from 1950s sci-fi movies such as Invaders From Mars, Brain From Planet Arous, Hideous Sun Demon, Devil Girl From Mars, The Flying Saucer, and Plan 9 From Outer Space.

It Came From Beyond is a comedy with characters that you can root for, a plot that will take you in, and unforgettable songs destined to be standards that will have the audience singing as they leave the theatre. It is suitable for all audiences and has a positive message.

One newspaper described the play as Grease meets War of the Worlds. Comic books, aliens, 1950’s dancing, and its music couldn’t be more relevant with parody songs like “American Way,” “They’re Here,” “Find a Hero,” and “Are You One of Them?” playfully set against the backdrop of paranoid Cold War propaganda.

“WICKED FROZEN” the untold parody musical St Lukes Theatre

Wicked Frozen begins previews at St. Lukes Theatre, playing Sunday evenings at 7:30 pm. on March 25, 2018. Opening date is April 8, 2018.

Wicked Frozen is the untold parody musical of some magic ice witch princesses and other stuff like that. (PG-13; Mild language)

Wicked Frozen is a high-energy grown-up parody mash-up of Wicked and Frozen, both celebrating and skewering these two wildly successful pop culture phenomenons. When Adele Dazeem and her teacher Kristen Chenobell become trapped in a Boston classroom during a freak blizzard, things take a turn for the absurd, as Adele sets off on a journey through the magical land of Scandinorfindelle. Wicked Frozen is not only a subversive satire on six cups of coffee, but also a reminder that even when things may only ‘be okay,’ it’s the people around us that truly matter.

Wicked Frozen Cast Members:

Kathleen Armenti, Lily Davis, Allison Frasca, Wills Jacobs, Tyler Joseph, Vanessa Magula, Jake McKenna, Chris Evan Simpson, Natalie Sullivan, Bethany Nicole Taylor, and Meagan Wells.

Michael Antin
(Composer, Bookwriter, Lyricist)

Retiring after 45 years of practice as a tax lawyer, Michael Antin has devoted himself to music and the theatre. His teaching experience, as a Visiting Professor of law, at Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California Berkeley, and in numerous countries of central Europe, brings a special perspective to his playwriting. Michael played five instruments and student conducted the All-Southern California High School Orchestra before even getting to high school. Upon entering UCLA he joined the choir conducted by Roger Wagner and moved on to the Chorale. He was the only non-music major admitted to the music honorary fraternity, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. Michael left music behind when he entered law school. When he retired in March 2008 from the practice of tax law, he resumed piano lessons and joined a choir. His piano teacher motivated him to write lyrics and to compose, resulting in a proliferation of songs. A cabaret singer heard some of his work and motivated Michael to write what became his first musical, “Answer the Call”. Additional experiences in getting to know people led to the further development and productions of the musicals Butterfly, Sophia, Renewal and Pillars of New York.

John Lant (Producing Artistic Director)

Mr. Lant is a 35-year veteran in the entertainment industry and has been involved in over 600 television, film, music tours, and theatrical productions as a creative director, consultant, and/or above the line entity. An award-winning producer, director, writer, lighting and set designer,
