"All this trouble over a fat little man in a red suit!" - Voldar

Classic is hardly an apt description of the 1964 cult movie Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, but The Red Curtain Foundation's rendition gives some levity the overly serious original. This hilarious play is as much a parody as it is an interpretation. The plot centers around members of Martian high command abducting Santa so their children can celebrate Christmas. Hilarity then ensues. Santa is perfectly, if not, overly jolly. Voldar the Vulgar is wonderfully villainous. 

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians will go on for one last weekend and I recommend you go out and see it! It may not be suitable for children for some language and green blood.

Below are some images from behind the scenes and you'll find show images within the slideshow! Be careful as there are definitely some spoilers!
