Information about other planets in the form of a comic monologue from the point of view of a salesman for The Galactic Touring Company. Running time is approximately 1 hour. We will cover a few of the wonders of our own solar system and then move on to planets discovered elsewhere in our galaxy. Topics will include naming conventions, interstellar distances, habitability zones, tidal locking, masses and gravity, types of stars. Featured locations will be Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Alpha Centauri, Sirius, Epsilon Eridani, Tau Ceti, Keid, Procyon, Epsilon Indi, EZ Aquarii, Gliese 876, 61 Cygni, Altair, Vega, Gliese 581, 55 Cancri, HD 69830, Upsilon Andromedae, and 18 Scorpii.
The house will open at 1:30, and the show will start promptly at 2:05. Latecomers will only be seated in the first 10 minutes, so if you will arrive after 2:15, don't bother. Admission will be $3 (to cover theatre rental) and will be collected at the door. The theatre only holds around 62, so if you would like to reserve a ticket because you won't be able to arrive early, just email me your name, email, and phone number and when you think you'll arrive.
Mark has been an actor for about 43 years and a fan of space travel and astronomy almost as long. He is just testing this new monologue on a particularly sympathetic and enthusiastic audience (he hopes).
