Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

by Mark Landon Smith
Directed by Ryan White

Campy – Nostalgic – B-Movie

The children of Mars are in trouble! Too much Earth television has made Martian kids everywhere distracted and withdrawn. The leaders have had enough and consult with an 800-year-old Martian sage for an answer— the response? Kidnap Santa and force him to set up a toy factory on Mars. It’s up to young Betty and Billy to help Santa escape back to planet Earth in time to save Christmas, but not before they bring laughter, joy, and the Christmas spirit to the children of Mars. Based on one of the “Top 10 Worst Christmas Films Ever Made,” this hysterical stage adaptation of the 1964 Cult Classic Film is a baffling mixture of sci-fi, Christmas cheer, and childish slapstick live and on stage!

Urinetown

by Mark Hollmann & Greg Kotis
Directed by Taylor Vickers

Satirical – Dystopian – Hilarious

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, environmental collapse, privatization of natural resources, bureaucracy, municipal politics, and musical theatre itself! In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny.

There are, however, a couple of glitches in paradise. His series is canceled, his girlfriend is staunchly virginal, and he has no desire to play Hamlet. When an unlikely seance summons the ghost of John Barrymore, Andrew’s life takes a wild turn. Barrymore, in full Shakespearean garb, pushes Andrew to accept the role and embrace his destiny. Chaos and hilarity ensue as Andrew juggles a lucrative TV offer, his conscience, and his attempts to succeed as Hamlet.
