Dreams on the Rocks Productions presents the outrageous space opera, Flash Gordon: Live! The year is 1980: Ronald Reagan is President, Pac-Man chomps into arcades, and all-American football hero Flash Gordon, meteorologist Dale Arden, and selenographist Hannah Zarkov find themselves in the unique position to save Earth from certain annihilation by the evil hands of Mingus “the Merciless” Despotski, Uncontested Ruler of the Universe. Will the well-intentioned Earthlings save their home planet? Will they unite the people of Mango? Or will they just get in the way!? Find out this May at EXIT Theatre!

This epic stage remake is based on the cinematic cult classic and inspired by Alex Raymond’s original comic strip. Adapted to stage by Becky Hirschfeld & Dani Spinks.

Starring Adam Vogel, Lauren Davidson, Becky Hirschfeld, Beebe Reisman, Arcady Eugene, Derek Lozupone, Joe Waterson, Eric Johnson, Jesus Rodriguez, Nick Leonard, Alex Falcioni, and Lonnie Haley as Ming the Merciless.

Apollonia (Stage Manager) has been acting for 13 years and stage managing for eight years. They have worked on theatre in the USA, Italy, and South Korea, where they started and ran their own theatre troupe of expats (Busan English Theatre Association). By day, they scare the living daylights out of people. By night, they work as a stage manager and theatre technician in San Francisco.
Eric Johnson (Fico/doctor/priest) No stranger to illegitimate theater, Eric has appeared in various iterations of "The Twilight Zone: Live!" (including a turn as the Rodster) in productions by both Dreams on the Rocks and the Dark Room. Eric was also a titular role in the Dark Room's "Batman and Robin: Live!" He is especially proud of his contributions to Sogo in the latest "Barbarella" (Live!, naturally).
Arcady Eugene (Vultan, Munson, Asst Dir, Fight Choreographer) has been performing around the Bay Area for 10 years, pursuing a love of stage combat, nerdiness, and fabulous outfits. They are thrilled to combine all these passions working with Dreams on the Rocks. You may remember them from Barbarella: On Stage and in Space as Professor Ping, a sexy Sogo space jellyfish, or wearing a sweet morph suit while helping Babs float through space.
