What’s been going on with the show?
According to student director Malcolm Gibbs, “We’ve had some [funny stories about] getting the different voices down. Working on the Swedish accent for Jacob King’s character Inspector Clay, and the southern drawl for Mack Rehm’s character, Danny.”
Why “Plan 9” and not another show?
Directors Brian Cappello and Thomas DeFeo are both big fans of the movie. “They saw the campiness and the cheesiness of the acting that make it truly funny,” said Gibbs.
