MainStage Irving-Las Colinas to Present SANTA CLAUS VS THE MARTIANS This Holiday Season Santa Claus Vs The Martians

MainStage Irving-Las Colinas and Camp Death Productions (CDP) have revealed the cast and creative team of the upcoming production of Santa Claus Vs the Martians. The hilarious play, based on the 1964 infamously bad cult movie Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, was created by DFW theater favorite Andi Allen in 2010 for Level Ground Arts (LGA). A critical hit, the play was revived by LGA to in 2012. Camp Death Productions brought the show back to life in 2014 in Plano and again in 2016 and 2018 at the Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park. After five years, CDP has brought the comedy back to life, this time as a co-production with MainStage.

The play recreates many of the hilariously bad acting moments and low budget props from the original film as Martian leader Kimar kidnaps Earth's Santa Claus to bring happiness and laughter to the children of Mars. Opposing Kimar in his plan are Martian villain Voldar, as well as two Earth children, Billy and Betty Foster. This show is fun for all ages!

Santa Claus Vs the Martians will be performed at MainStage 222 in downtown Irving from December 1-17. Tickets range from $12-$18 and are sale now at MainStage 222 is located at 222 E Irving Blvd, Irving, TX 75060.
