Illuminati Lizards from Outer Space

Book and Lyrics by Yuri Worontschak and Paul Western-Pittard Music by Yuri Worontschak

Musical Theatre's New World Order is coming to get you.

Beauty Competitions, Power-Politics, and Conspiracies. The Lizard-Overlords, based in a broken-down flying saucer masquerading as a Las Vegas Cabaret, plan to colonize the planet. But when the Overlord gives this inept crew just one week to complete the mission under the threat of the total destruction of Earth, they have no choice but to turn to beauty-contestant, Tina Morone to save the mission. And the world. This rollicking, sci-fi comedy asks the question: how far would you go to rule the world?

Running Time: 120 minutes

Paul Western-Pittard (Writer - Book, Music, Lyrics)

Paul is a writer with a focus on both comedy and the darker spaces of the human psyche. He’s also found that both these things tend to go hand in hand…

He has written and edited episodic television, published three novels and has an animated full-length feature film currently in development.

Paul has written for the Australian icon, ‘Ettamogah Pub’ including a series of webisodes, broadcast animated series. A writer for the internationally recognised series ‘Get Ace’, he has also line-produced the hit series ‘The Day My Butt Went Psycho.’

Paul’s published works include ‘Jan and the Spooky Periscope Incident’ where shortly after launch the novella ranked inside the top 100 comedy ebooks worldwide on Amazon.com.

Following this Paul went on to write his first full-length novel, a dark psychological thriller, Undreamed. Leveraging his experience with Amazon, Paul published Undreamed to Amazon, Kobo, Smashwords and Apple iBooks, averaging 5-star reviews and earning loyal fan base and a large social media following.

Since then Paul has divided his time between comedy and psychological works, writing and producing for television, film and long-form novels.
