“One Way Trip to Mars” is a rock opera featuring 24 original songs by Bath residents Peter Alexander & Johannah Harkness. Following several successful performances as a multi-media concert at the Chocolate Church Arts Center (Bath) in September 2016 and the Frontier Theater (Brunswick) in January 2017, the show was performed at Waterville Opera House August 24 – 27.
Featuring an 11-piece orchestra, five principle actors, and a seven member ensemble, the music and action on stage is enhanced with cinematic video, props, lighting, audio, and special effects. “One Way Trip to Mars,” is not just entertaining musical theater, it engages audiences in timely questions about space travel and actual plans by NASA and other public and private organizations to colonize the red planet within the next two decades.
