In Star Corps IV: The Search for Mind Zap, evil aliens threaten to take over the universe. Captain Morgan and the crew of Spaceship Endeavor try to stop them before it’s too late. In Oh My, An Invasion! aliens steal a great Mayan temple and capture a human who promises to lead them to a mysterious artifact. A time-traveler, famous folks from history and very secretive secret agents band together to foil the aliens.

ArtStream and its Arlington Inclusive Theatre Companies have created scripts and music for the two one-acts based on ideas generated during improvisational sessions with the actors. ArtStream productions are tailored to showcase each actor’s abilities. Join with ArtStream’s cast and crew at these sci-fi adventures and discover the truth about what really matters.

This is such a wonderful organization and I hope you will make the trip to Gunston and support these wonderful actors.
