Vivacious “Voyage to Venus” on May 17



“A magical humorous show that transports the audience, along with a few intrepid explorers, to the planet of love and beauty — and to the enchantments and dangers of the female, erotic imagination. Decor, costumes, and props are inspired by George Melies’ wonderful 1902 movie A Trip to the Moon with an added contemporary “steampunk” edge.”

  1. Hilarious musical comedy about 5 Venus Explorer Club members (all male) hearing of alien abductions, who bravely take a rocket trip to Venus. They meet the Queen of Venus, Venusian guardians & belly dancers, as well as a vicious Venus Man-Trap. The finale is a laughing Volcano who sings “I Give you Fever”, with audience participatory dancing to “I’m Your Venus of Fire” song. Quite a well attended play by a lively neighborhood theatre group.
