FanFiction Theatre



FanFiction Theatre is a community theatre group presenting fandom based entertainment. Since being established in 2018, FanFiction Theatre has had five productions at CaperCon (4 live and 1 online). For CaperCon 2024, FanFiction Theatre is remounting their earlier production: Plan 9 From Outer Space, but this time on stage.
Plan 9 From Outer Space is adapted from the cult classic film written, directed and produced by Ed Wood. While considered by the film critic Michael Medved to be “the worst film in the history of cinema”, not all agreed. This low budget campy sci-fi adventure served as the inspiration for many creators, most notably Tim Burton. It is so bad that it’s good. In this adaptation, FanFiction Theatre is reintroducing this story as the campy comedy parody of the sci-fi genre that it was always meant to be with some new twists, reference humour, and maybe even a music number.


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!
