CHICAGO – Humans. Robots. Tentacle aliens. And one LIZARD MAN. This ragtag crew of space cleaners sail around the stars to dispose of the junk left behind. It’s all part of a routine mission until BLAM! their ship is pulled too close to the sun. Now with their lives on the line, the crew must come together to escape the sun’s gravity or they’ll be SPACE DUST in no time.
“Space Scum: The Musical” features songs like “Space Cleaners for Slobs,” “Tentacle Hero” and “Alien Sex.” This hilarious production brings a mix of sci-fi adventure, alien romance, and out of this world comedy (pun intended) straight to the stage.
Writer of the two previous musicals “Toast! The Food Competition Musical” and “A Wet Dream on Elm Street: The Musical,” Brandon Sherman is now making Space Scum: The Musical his directorial debut at the Annoyance Theatre.
