Other Orbits is Pee Wee's Playhouse meets the UN Summit in a camp science fiction extravaganza. Mutant creatures gather at an interplanetary council meeting and struggle to get their voices heard and their needs met. Will collective decision-making succeed? Can the planet speak for itself? Who will judge the karaoke contest? Will they even get through the agenda?! This truly unforgettable, 360 degree experience transports audiences to another world where larger-than-life aliens and sentient plants and machines stop being polite and start getting real.
From Applied Mechanics, “Philadelphia’s most unusual theater company” (Philly Weekly) comes a spectacular, accessible installation which takes over the entirety of Standby Stages film studio in Kensington.
World premiere! Running July 9 through 22. For more information visit www.appliedmechanics.us

TICKETS: Ticket prices are sliding scale at $20, $30, $50 and a $15 industry rate. If you purchase the $50 ticket, you are welcome to come to the show up to three times!!!
Transparency on pricing: Producing a show like Other Orbits costs over $100,000. The total budget covers design materials, artist salaries, tech rentals, venue, insurance, rehearsal space, and various odds and ends of production. Ticket sales cover only a portion of these costs. If we were going to break even on ticket sales alone, each ticket would have to be around $200. Instead of limiting ourselves and our audiences in this way, we have chosen a tiered ticket price model for the production and resourced the majority of our budget through grants, donations, and other forms of earned income.
