The play, based on the 1960s infamously bad cult movie “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians,” was created by Allen in 2010 for Level Ground Arts. The show was a critical hit, which prompted LGA to revive the show in 2012. This latest incarnation is being produced by Camp Death Productions at the Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park.
The play recreates many of the hilariously bad acting moments and low budget props from the original film, as Martian leader Kimar kidnaps Earth’s Santa Claus in order to bring happiness and laughter to the children of Mars. Opposing Kimar in his plan are Martian villain Voldar, as well as two Earth children, Billy and Betty Foster.
