Joel Hodgson, creator of the critically acclaimed “Mystery Science Theater 3000” TV show and its new host Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray) will bring their first live touring production of “MST3K” to the Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland on August 3rd as part of the “Watch Out for Snakes!” Tour.
Appearing with Joel and Jonah live on stage will be robot companions Crow (Hampton Yount), Tom Servo and Gypsy, along with Synthia (Rebecca Hanson) and her Bonehead henchmen. Of course, it wouldn’t be “MST3K” without the ever-present surveillance of the Mads, Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) and TV’s Son of TV’s Frank (Patton Oswalt), checking up on their unwilling test subjects via a video screen.
The 8pm performance is the MST3K favorite film “Eegah,” featuring all-new riffs and sketches. Other cities will get a second show with a “Secret Surprise Film.”
Following the #BringBackMST3K Kickstarter campaign, the new season of the TV show launched on April 14, 2017 on Netflix. The live shows are written by the cast and writers of the new Netflix Original Series.
Tickets for all North American tour dates will go on sale to the public Friday, May 19 at noon local time, via AXS.com and the Midland box office.
