The Mystery Science Theater 3000 gang is going on tour! The cast of Netflix’s recent revival of the cult series will be riffing on B-movies live and in person around the country this summer.

Series creator Joel Hodgson, host Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray), robot companions Crow (Hampton Yount), Tom Servo and Gypsy, and Synthia (Rebecca Hanson) and her Bonehead henchmen will be appearing live on stage. Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) and TV’s Son of TV’s Frank (Patton Oswalt) will join them via a video screen.

Every city on the tour will feature all-new riffs and sketches for the notoriously bad 1962 horror movie Eegah, while select stops will receive a separate second show with a surprise film.

Tour dates can be found below, along with a promo video. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 19, at noon local time via AXS.com and the venue box office.

The earliest mention of this deity, who was worshiped throughout the Hellenistic and Roman worlds, dates back to Alexander the Great’s presence in Babylon. The Greek historian Arrian of Nicomedia listed Serapis as a Babylonian god who had a temple in the city of Babylon. Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA.
