It’s Wednesday, and we get to see the 7th grade student play in today’s Albert the Alien: Romeo and Juliet – IN SPACE!

Even though the setting has changed, the kids are still speaking in the old English original text of the play. This is basically a sci-fi twist on the series, not unlike how Baz Luhrmann set it in modern times in the 1996 movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. With the show being sold out for the first time here, this clearly has worked on the local population of Heston Heights – or maybe it’s just the fact there’s an alien in it that’s drawing them in. Either way, sales are good for earning money for the school programs.

So will Gerty get her first kiss on stage? Come back Friday to find out!

In case you didn’t hear, we’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund Albert the Alien Volume 1: New in School as a graphic novel! Please check it out, pledge today (the popular reward levels are disappearing quickly), and help spread the word by telling all your friends and family about the project! Together we can make an amazing graphic novel filled with the webcomic series we all enjoy, as well as a ton of bonus content only available in this exclusive print edition!

Please pledge today!
