Heather says: "This is not a new concept. There is a quirky theater outside of LA that does this show every year and it sells out by Halloween. We know we are not LA, but boy do the Akers love cheesy camp. Someone said on Instagram that they hope the play is better than the movie and I am here to tell you…it’s NOT and we couldn’t be more happy about that. With a little bit of a contemporary adaptation and a dash of MST 3k, we think this will be a silly, family-friendly way to celebrate your holidays. When the stress of it all is weighing on your soul, what could be better than little kids in Martian make up?"
Richie says: "Let's be clear, this is going to be FUN! We are taking a holiday movie that is awesomely terrible, and making it one of the best family holiday shows you'll experience in your entire life. EVER. (Yes, this is really happening.)"
