Conquest…tells the tale of Tamberlaine (Kirk Jackson as Philip Oakey), President of Earth, who systematically conquers every planet in the Solar System. Taking Bajazeth (J. Keegan Siebken as George Michael), King of Mars as his sex slave and imprisoning Zabina (Caitlin Jackson as Debbie Harry), Queen of Mars while doing his best to avoid his long-suffering wife, Maria (Allison Williams as Cyndi Lauper). While Zabina’s twin brother and lover Cosroe (Korey Enright as Billy Idol) attempts to destroy Tamberlaine and bring his rape and pillaging of the planets to an end.
    Tamberlain’s idea of “conquest” involves penetrating every leader of every planet, especially the male leaders, including Venus (Suzanne Bracken as Madonna), Queen of Venus and Natolia (Raymond Lawson as Joan Collins), Drag Queen of Saturn.
    This farce by Charles Ludlam, freely adapted into a musical by Ludicrous Theatre Company, touches on a wide variety of theatre forms, from Camp to Kabuki. Director Wayne Shaw’s “ludicrous twist” this time around, is that the actors are playing 80’s Pop Stars, playing Ludlam’s characters. With music from Blondie, Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, George Michael, Billy Idol and more, Ludicrous aims to shock, please and tease its audiences. Under the musical direction of T.J. Anderson, Ludicrous brings Pop Rock to Outer Space.

Be Aware: Strobe lights and Adult Content. VERY adult content.

Also Featuring: Karen Gold as Pee-wee Herman, Sean-Edward D. Hall, Jeff Watkins, J. Lance Williams as Mike Score

Choreographed by Ally Carey with Lighting Design by James Kassabian. Costumes by Suzanne Bracken.
