A Wacky Space-Based Comical Production


Mars Opera: The Alien Menace
A Comical Play with Music


“AZooNY’s Mars Opera is somewhat of a cross between the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and a Monty Python production.  Oh, also with a little bit of Looney Tunes cartoons thrown in.”The Galactical New Times


The Alien Menace


“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.  There is another theory which states that this has already happened.” ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy


Most of the action takes place in other planetary worlds or during space travel.  An aspect of Mission Control is usually present.

Mildly futuristic.

Two space travelers from Earth are sent to repair a seemingly broken Mars exploration Rover-prober.  Unbeknown to Mission Control, they get caught up in zany adventures involving space aliens, un-Earthly planetary lands, an alien practical joker Queen just out to have fun, and eventually a mischievous great galactical race, which ends up being quite the navigational mess.  They then must stop the Earth from being overrun by an audience-suggested and alien-implanted menacing object. But it all circles back in the end, and ultimately just who IS the target of alien trickery:-)?


“It’s the Mars curse. Half of all Mars missions inexplicably fail. The reason’s always different, every time.”Mission Control Scientist

“What a fun odyssey that flows like a book from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. The plot and characters are well developed, which opens up the opportunity for sequels. So put on your UTTs (UniTrans-Trolisizers) and jump into the race!” –Victor Shalogin, World Galaxy Press
