About the show

'Grease' meets 'War of the Worlds' with comic books, aliens, and 1950’s dancing in this family friendly musical comedy.  More…

'It Came From Beyond' takes place in a high school science classroom in 1959 and switches between two parallel stories. It centers on the nerdy, high school geek whose only chance to save the popular, beautiful girl that he loves, is to find the secret hidden in a new comic book called 'It Came From Beyond.' In the parallel story, an astronomer seeks the same secret in order to stop an attack on planet Earth from aliens from outer space.
