Abduction

Book by T.J. Pieffer; Music by Becki Toth and Brad Kemp; Lyrics by T.J. Pieffer and Becki Toth

A musical comedy of galactic proportions.

Science! Cows! Musical Theatre! In the small town of Pluto, Indiana, Pippa Peterson must save the day from mysterious extraterrestrial lights before her whole town is beamed into outer space. It's "The Twilight Zone" flipped on it’s head, with a cast of larger than life characters, snappy dialogue, and space jams that will get stuck in your head for light years to come!
