North Platte Community College’s theater department will present “Plan 9 from Outer Space” next month.

The curtain will go up at 7:30 p.m. April 3-6 in the McDonald-Belton Theater on the NPCC South Campus, 601 W. State Farm Rd., in North Platte.

The play is adapted from the science fiction horror film of the same name from the 1950s that was produced, written and directed by Ed Wood.

The plot focuses on aliens seeking to stop humanity from creating a doomsday weapon that could destroy the universe.

The extraterrestrials come up with “Plan 9,” a scheme to resurrect Earth’s dead. The aliens hope that by causing chaos, humans will listen to them, and if not, there will be no choice but to destroy mankind with zombie armies.

“’Plan 9 from Outer Space,’ is the epitome of ‘so-bad-it’s-good’ cinema,” said NPCC Theater Instructor Ritch Galvan, who will direct the play. “It is an unintentionally hilarious sci-fi ‘thriller’ from anti-genius Ed Wood that is celebrated for its staggering ineptitude. This stage adaption will be part homage and part mockery of the cult classic film.”

Admission for the play is $5 per person. The college’s students, faculty and staff will be admitted free with an ID.
