Illuminati Lizards from Outer Space


    Krystal Lyons, failed beauty-pageant contestant, checks into rehab, run by Illuminati-lizard Overlords using the hospital as a cover. They’re on a mission to colonize the planet. The problem is – they’re running out of time before the mission is cancelled and planet Earth is annihilated. Believing the aliens to be a symptom of her stressed-out psyche, Krystal decides to help her new friends ‘conquer the earth’ by putting on their very own Beauty Pageant. With musical numbers that are surprising and memorable, Illuminati Lizards from Outer Space explores how we would react if we had the chance to get everything we ever wanted, no matter the cost.
