Just yesterday, I got this email from a teacher at the Sanquhar Primary School in Scotland. Wow. 

A big ‘Hi’ from Sanquhar Primary.

We were the enthusiastic school at your Friday performance.

I thought you might like to read what the kids thought of the show so I’ve included their blog. They have the freedom write what they want in their blog (as long as it’s not abusive obviously) so you can be sure of honest reviews, they will not just try to be nice. I’ve sent it to Imaginate too.

I thought the show was amazing and I hope hope Book 2 is at next year’s festival. Well worth the 4 hours in a bus to see you.

Our class trip to the Imaginate Festival took in the show The Intergalactic Nemesis. A  stage based live radio show with comic book graphics and live music. Yes, I know it sounds weird. And it was!!

  • I loved the show it was so cool and powerfull show ever i almost cried at the end i want to watch it again becaus the actors were just amazing they done so so good and at the end th hole class stood up it took me by surprise!!! victoria donegan P5/6

  • I have got to admit it has been the best trip ever in my appinion. It was amazing because ther was only 3 sound people and they done about 10 voices each. The piano player was fantastic with all the low notes and all the high notes. Molly was realy nice and how she could do all they different voices. The sound man up on stage was out of this world the wind sounded very real. The most favourite person I like was the doc and all the other people he played. It was like he had turned into a different person. It was out of this world.

  • “This show was stunning”.”My favourite person was the person in the middle making sound affects or the person to the left of the girl. But all the cast defintley made my day.”I thought the show would be weird when Mr Douglas told us about it but it was not actually weird in the end.

  • This was the best show I really liked there accent. The sound effects man was my fave he was amazing he could do everything. It was cool there vioces acted out the parts my fave acter was the one who was acting out ben. I would love to go and see another one of The Intergalactic Nemesis. The book one was ausome but I bet that book two will be ausome to. I really liked cats but The Intergalactic Nemesis was so much bettter. The piano man was really good at the end his hands were all over the place I just couldn’t keep up with his hands. If I had to rate stars out of ten, I would pick ten and come back. I could just imagine how much you practiced. The man’s face who was acting ben he was so scary, He has a very loud voice it was scary. Goodluck for the future all of you. I hope we could come back and see you again. Many thanks!

  • The show was the best show I have seen in my life. I have never seen a show with as many sound affects and voices. That was made out of a comic strip.

    by Robert

  • I was away to black pool but my friends and class mate’s told me all about it and it sond so cool.

  • The Trip was amazing the way they made diffrent voices.The man with the gadgect things was amazing how he made some of the noises I dont know.The paino player was realy cool his hands looked like jelly at the end but he was scary but I think that was his image.

  • When I first went in and took my seat and I didnt know what to expect. There was a big table in the middle with all these diffrent things on it like a toy truck,some maccaroni and all different strange things.When it began I was amazed at how all those things on the table made diffrent sounds and how the comic strip pictures flashed on the screen.It was so entertaning and that was all I talked about to my Mum and Dad.I think it was great how they had everything happen on the stage and it wasnt backstage.The cast was so friendly to us after the show as well. I will definatly be begging my Mum to take me again. Thanks for such a great day! Erin

  • intergalactic Nemesis was amazing.It was one of the best shows i have seen in my life.I loved the sound affects, they were out of this world.It was really cool how it was a radio show and the sound affects were not done with computers,and were done with all diffrent sorts of things.It was amazing how the cast could change there voices about 60 times in the show.Sometimes it was funny and other times it was sad.

    characters where amazing and I really want to see them again.

  • The Intergalactic nemesis was an amazing and spectacular show,it was amazing the way they made all the sounds,and the piano player was so so good,i dont now how he can play like that.The voices of Molie,Timmy and Ben were amazing i dont now how they were able to remember all of the lines. If my mum lets me i would greatfully go to The Intergalactic Nemesis again. :D

    By the Archive, this was the best Live-action-graphic-radio-adventure I've seen this year! I brought my 9 year old daughter to the show, she laughed her butt off and had a great time. We love graphic novels, audio books, and as it happens, also old radio shows like The Shadow and Suspense! What a combo! Everybody in the show Nailed it! The music was masterful, and the sound effects had me lost in the moments. Well done! Also, everyone was super nice at the autograph table after the show, and Leda walked away feeling real special… can't wait for book two!
