Go see this it is very funny! Just like watching a '50s Sci-fi flick. The cast is excellent and the special effects were as well.

Hmm where to start...First let me say that I like camp and cheesy, and have seen many good ones. This one definitely is not. The acting was achingly bad and not in the intentional way. If they wanted to be campy, they should go all out. Instead it...continued

It was a whole lot of fun. Took us back to our teens. It was filled with surprises and laughs. Would highly recommend going to see it before it closes next weekend.

Funny, campy production, extremely entertaining. Great night out. Venue is good too, intimate theatre on a school campus, but it is NOT a school production. All seats are good.

Very funny!! It was well acted by everyone including the children. As others have noted, the production had fun special effects. Alot of thought went into the props and staging. This is one they should do every few years as a camp classic. Highly...continued

This play was very fun and creative. A lot of thought went into the sets and the play itself. The multi media effect of the newscasts and the giant really added to the entertainment. The acting was great too. A great evening!

This was by far the worse event I have attended at Costa Mesa Playhouse. The writing and acting were terrible, the sets unbelievably bad and we left at intermission. This was definitely not a tribute to Peter Graves, it was more just "grave".

I took my 6 year old son and he loved it. all the cheeses 1950's specail effects were great. Everyone laughted at the silliness! He enjoyed the 150ft giant looking throw the window and was completly amazed. A fun time for the young at heart.

Spoof on every 1950's sci-fi film I remember as a child. I laughed and laughed! Great dialogue, creative production design. I would see this again if I had the chance. YEA!! for the Costa Mesa Playhouse!

For any fan of 50's Sci Fi this show is a must see. From the cheesy special effects to the over the top acting it was truly enjoyable. You can tell the cast members are also having fun with their roles.
