“Hilarious! Superb! Marvelous! Out of this world!” – NY Daily News

DATELINE: MILWAUKEE, 1955 – FLYING SAUCER INVASION!
A bevy of flying saucers from Planet X has appeared over the skies of Beertown, led by evil alien aviatrix Queen Zombina, on a quest to “zombify” and abduct all of Earth’s men! The Milwaukee Space Center and the US military are prepared to meet the foes head on, until Zombina unleashes her "stratospheric" secret weapon. It’s up to a mild-mannered scientist, an all-American girl-next-door, a man-hungry secretary and one plucky, tap-dancing delivery boy to save the world from this planetary menace from outer space!

A critical smash Off-Broadway in 1995, this affectionate satire of 1950s sci-fi B-movies makes its LA debut at last, as part of the 2014 Hollywood Fringe Festival.
