FanFiction Theatre Presents: PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE

Friday 6:30pm-7pm (seating) 7:00pm - 8:30pm (Performance)

The world is under attack by flying saucers from outer space! The aliens set their terrible “Plan 9” into action: they intend to conquer the planet by resurrecting the dead from a Hollywood cemetery. The living dead — Vampira, a Dracula wannabe, and a slow-footed Ghoul — stalk curious humans who wander into the cemetery looking for evidence of the UFOs. Our heroes: an American pilot, an army Colonel, and a bunch of cops have to save the world, and the damsel in distress from the megalomaniacal plans of the alien graver robbers. Monsters, graves, bodies, ughhh!
