Making its world premiere at the Waterville Opera House, One Way Trip To Mars features 21 original songs by Maine musicians Peter Alexander and Johannah Harkness. Directed by Dennis St. Pierre, the show tells a fictional story about Paolo, the first human chosen to fly a solo, one-way mission to establish a human colony on Mars. The performance takes audiences on an emotional rollercoaster, from Paolo’s exuberance at being chosen for the mission, to his coming to grips with the reality of forever leaving behind his wife and everything he loves on earth. When catastrophic events on earth cause communication links with Mars to go down, Paolo is left alone in the universe. From there the story accelerates to its dramatic conclusion. Tickets: $24 adults, $22 and students. Tickets go on sale May 12 at FMI
