ROCHESTER — The “Dorks” are back at the Rochester Performance & Arts Center, armed with an alternate universe for the show “Geeks In Galaxies” at 8 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets are $15, and are available by calling 948-1099 or visiting RochesterOperaHouse.com.

Dorks in Dungeons, a comedy troupe based in Portsmouth, got its start in 2012 at the

Players’ Ring during a small weekend festival focused on alternative theater events.

The show continued to play monthly, moving to the Seacoast Rep in 2013 as part of the Red Light Series. For its fourth season, the Dorks moved to 3S Artspace.

The Dorks have shared the stage with guests from film and television, such as Miltos Yerolemou from “Game of Thrones” and Mark Patton from “Nightmare on Elm Street 2,” as well as local actors from a variety of production companies. Some shows have even incorporated musical underscoring from live musicians with Miles Burns, artistic director of the Seacoast Rep, as the most-often returning musical guest.

The Dorks also have performed Gen Con in Indianapolis, the original role-playing game convention started by Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons, and appeared at Boston Comic Con, Granite State Comic Con, PortConMaine, and Hal-Con in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
