ABDUCTION: A New Comedy Musical
Friday, July 8, 2022
ABDUCTION is a new musical comedy written by T.J. Pieffer, Brad Kemp, and Becki Toth.
Abduction tells the story of high school student body president Pippa Peterson whose social footing crumbles after she witnesses an alien abduction in her tiny suburban town of Pluto, Pennsylvania. A wave of paranoid misinformation leads her neighbors to hypothesize the light she saw was everything from Bill Gates to the return of Jesus Christ. Pippa must convince them of the grave danger they're truly in, all while coming to terms with her cozy hometown's many flaws. Will they escape the clutches of hungry, flesh eating aliens in time for this year's Corn Fest? ABDUCTION features an original score of catchy pop tunes, snappy dialogue, and a talented local cast.
