UTNT (UT New Theatre) presents Galactic Orphans


By Megan Tabaque
Directed by Graham Schmidt

With no parents, not enough Doritos and a little too much vodka in their Sprite, Ri and Ted reunite a year after graduating high school for an all-night Archangel 3 video gaming marathon. But Ted’s little sister, Cory, won’t let “Guy’s Night” happen without a fight. In 24 hours, Ri, Cory and Ted work together to save the war-torn Archangel galaxy but may not be able to save each other.

Galactic Orphans contains mature themes and language. The running time is approximately 90 minutes. There is no intermission.  View the Galactic Orphans playbill.


March 2, 5, 10 at 7:30 p.m.
