The Lab presents an original musical parody of the iconic 1979 film Alien. Our motley crew of cosmonauts awakes from hypersleep to investigate a distress signal from a nearby planet. They unwittingly bring onto the ship an aggressive alien bent on reproduction and domination—with tap dancing!

With book and lyrics by Laboratory Theater Artistic Director Annette Trossbach and music by W. Earl Sparrow, this brand new musical parody of the iconic 1979 film Alien makes its world premiere on the Lab Theater stage this June. Enjoy songs like Why Mansplaining is For Your Own GoodEveryone Who’s Homophobic is Secretly Gay, and the tap-dancing show-stopper Sacrifice. This motley crew of cosmonauts and cephalopods will have you laughing, applauding, and rooting for our alien, who just wants to be a mom.

Director Annette Trossbach says, “We’re following up our hit parodies Birds and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane with this over-the-top musical show that sends up the hit 1979 Alien movie, starring Sigourney Weaver. Tight harmonies, tap dancing aliens, and quick-witted banter will have audiences in stitches! It’s been a pleasure to develop this show with our team and with the support of the city of Fort Myers.  Look out for special events surrounding the special effects for this show!”
