About the Show

A Troubadour Theater Company Production
Directed by Matt Walker & Joseph Leo Bwarie

Opening Night is December 9 at 8pm.

This holiday season, journey to a far away land where a new king is on the rise and a drummer with a dilemma is asking, "Is There Life On Mars?"

The award-winning Troubadour Theater Company boldly reimagines the classic story of the drummer boy like never before, playfully spoofing the mystique and melodies of glam rock icon, David Bowie.

This laugh-out-loud musical parody finds our "Heroes" in a heartwarming tale of family, forgiveness and "Changes," resulting in the ultimate discovery for all seasons: "Modern Love" lives inside.

Talkback Thursdays

Ticketholders attending Thursday night performances on December 15, and January 5 & 12 are welcome to participate in an informal Q&A discussion with members of the show

Spark of Love Toy Drive
