Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Auditions: Saturday, September 23, and Sunday, September 24.
Performances: Friday, December 1, at 8:00pm, Saturday, December 2, matinée at 2:00pm, and Saturday, December 2, evening show at 8:00pm at Unity Somerville
This December, The Post-Meridian Radio Players will be presenting an original adaptation of that 1964 Christmas classic film, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, in which Martians, concerned that their children are bored and listless and don’t want to do anything but watch Earth television programs, kidnap Santa Claus (and a couple of unlucky Earth children) from the earth and bring him to Mars to make toys so their children can be kids again. Can Santa get back to Earth in time for Christmas? Are the children of Mars doomed to a joyless life of food pills and machine-implanted learning? Is that terrifying, huge polar bear going to eat our young heroes? Will Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo show up to heckle? (Hint: No.) Find out for yourself at PMRP’s Santa Claus Conquers the Martians!

See our Auditions page to learn how you can be a part of the show!

This is a family-friendly event and at least for the matinée we will have some fun kids’ activities before the show.
