Trump in Space is Star Trek meets Avenue Q meets Trump, a musical battle of good vs. bad and ideals vs. opportunism. This original musical is an epic space adventure filled with all the sci-fi tropes we love and all the politics we love to hate. Four hundred years in the future, the fallout of the Trump administration has left humans stranded without a planet. Captain Natasha Trump, a direct descendant of President Donald J. Trump, races to find humanity a new planet because the earth blew up! Said Shari Barrett of, "Laughs abound with each farcical situation based on political satire to the max - with great ensemble harmonies throughout." Trump in Space proudly occupies a spot on the Top Ten.

The cast includes (in alphabetical order) Gillian Bellinger, Landon Kirksey, Mary Lou, Scott Palmason, Nicole Pellegrino, Joy Regullano, Jessie Sherman, Jim Shipley, and Rob Warner.
