This is a great little theater that produces surprising good plays with rich sets and costumes. Santa Conquers the Martians in style and humor that is fun for the whole family but not strictly for kids. Based on one of the worst movies ever made...continued

We loved it! My husband and 12 year old son had a blast and really enjoyed themselves. I almost had to drag them there, but now they both say they'd be willing to see it again. The cast was terrific and the humor spot on. We're still quoting some...continued

The play is based on the movie by the same name and pokes fun at the absurdity of the awful movie. The humor of the play was silly but not cleaver got a few laughs here and there but overall found it to be boring and dull. We have seen some...continued

This play was so wrong, it was right. It completed the continuum. We thought it was great fun and got our pictures taken with the cast...next years Christmas cards!

It was hilarious and there's not a bad seat in the house. Go see it, you won't be sorry! Oh, and take your camera, Santa and the Martians come out after the play for pictures.

I can see why the Maverick has been able to perform this show to sold-out crowds for 7 years! The director and cast have taken a cheesy 'B' movie script and turned it into something HILARIOUS! We laughed through the entire show. Kudos to all...continued

We had heard about this production through the grapevine and jumped at the chance to take our boys to see it when it appeared on Goldstar. It was a perfect evening out! The theater is hidden away in the Downtown Fullerton area so a pre-show...continued

We saw the hysterical play just a few days before Christmas. This is our 3rd year in a row. It's not Christmas without seeing this talented cast improv their way through each year. Laughter is a guarantee!!
I will be back next year too.

The best holiday show out there. It's a great way to kick-off the holiday season and has become a tradition in our family. Nathan Makaryk is outstandingly hilarious as the villainous Martian Voldar.

Go see the stage adaptation of a really...continued

This is the 3rd year in a row I have seen this show. I have not grown bored with it yet. Each year, the cast incorporates new ad libs and pop culture references to keep the show fresh. It was fantastic. The cast has outdone themselves once...continued
