Writer/director Rodney Smith calls his play, Full-Tilt Boogie at the Big Bang Diner, “a comedic love letter to all levels of pop-culture fandom.” In it, humanity faces off against an unknown menace while “a couple with a secret, their disaffected daughter, her clueless fiancé and a snarky waitress” choose between saving the world or settling “on the recipe for the perfect iced tea.” The work stars Darren Marshall, Karen Covington-Yow, Carrie Kimbrell Kimzey, Hannah Williams-Beaver, Chris Kingsley, Emma Heisey and Jason Phillips and will have its world premiere at The Magnetic Theatre. Performances begin Thursday, May 24, and continue through Saturday, June 9, with shows at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. $12 preview performances May 24-25/$16 for May 26-June 9. themagnetictheatre.org.
