We did it, you guys, we colonized Mars! Hooray for humanity! But there's just one problem... Turns out interplanetary colonization is pretty expensive and Mars isn't exactly paying for itself. What happens to the people on Mars if Earth decides to cut them off? They'll probably be fine, it's just business after all...

Taking shots at the media, the Man, and all of us, Colonize It! is a brand new comedy about the cost and consequences of conquest. Written by Allycea Weil and directed by Asa Fager, this is the latest addition to Ghost Light Theatricals' tradition of hilarious and thoughtful alt night productions.

 

Other details:
This is an alt night production. Rehearsals are scheduled through much of December, primarily on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Tech is on January 14, and performances are January 16, 17, 23, and 24.

We are also seeking a Stage Manager!
