In This Onstage Production, An Unlikely Hero May Be Able to Save New Jersey

Marietta Theatre Company is making a splash into their second season with The Toxic Avenger, a monstrously funny rock musical that tells the story of a man with a dream to save the world, but faces a tragedy that ultimately helps him in the long run. The Toxic Avenger, set to run through November 3 at the Lyric Studio on the Square, is a side-splitting comedy written by David Bryan and Joe DiPietro, the Tony award-winning writers behind the musical "Memphis."

The tongue-in-cheek musical follows the story of Melvin Ferd III, who wants to clean up Tromaville, the most polluted town in New Jersey. A wrench is thrown into his plans when the goons who are working for the Mayor throw him into a vat of radioactive waste. Melvin reemerges as The Toxic Avenger, Jersey's first super hero. Known adoringly as "Toxie," he sets out on his journey to save New Jersey, end global warming and capture the heart of the town's blind librarian.

The cast is full of hilarious characters that the audience will come to know and love including Melvin Ferd III/ The Toxic Avenger (Claudio Pestana); his girlfriend, the blind librarian Sarah (Sophia Decker) and the evil Mayor Babs Belgoody/Ma Ferd (Janine DeMichele Baggett). The show also stars (PJ Woods) and (John Jenkins), who show off their talents by playing multiple zany and memorable characters.

Tickets to witness The Toxic Avenger are 25 dollars and may be purchased online. Don’t miss the final performance of what promises to be an instant classic!
