The Maverick Theater, in its quest to perform cinema on stage, has pulled from the vaults a Christmas tale that only Hollywood could have conceived. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is so ridiculous, so absurd, it’s entertaining.
Martian leaders are worried because their children are not sleeping and eating. Consulting a ancient Martian sage, they are advised that the children of Mars are rebelling due to the society’s overly rigid structure; from infancy, all their education is fed into their brains through computers, and they are not allowed to play or have fun. The only way to help the children is to allow them to have toys. To do this, they need a Santa Claus. The Martian leaders decide to kidnap Santa Claus and bring him to Mars to make toys for the children.
The production captures all the hokey B-movie elements such as costumes, set pieces and corny character portrayals. The show is suitable for kids 5 and up, and adults will enjoy the “SNL” style of the performances.
