This Mel Brooks classic gets the Live Read treatment. Brought to you by Accidental Theatre and Belfast Film Festival.

Directed by Emily DeDakis (who has never seen Spaceballs) along with a stellar secret cast (who probably have, many times). The full cast lists and the role each actor will play is kept secret until the event itself. The actors do not rehearse ahead of time.

In a distant galaxy, planet Spaceball has depleted its air supply, leaving its citizens reliant on a product called “Perri-Air.” In desperation, Spaceball’s leader President Skroob (Mel Brooks) orders the evil Dark Helmet to kidnap Princess Vespa of oxygen-rich Druidia and hold her hostage in exchange for air. But help arrives for the Princess in the form of renegade space pilot Lone Starr and his half-man, half-dog partner, Barf (John Candy).
