Abduction: A Musical Comedy

This is a past event.
  • Won second prize in New Musicals Inc. international search for new musicals!
  • Selected to BE MTAP'S inaugural incubator production!
  • Selected to be in the 2019 New York Musical festival as a reading!

With a book by T.J. Pieffer, lyrics by Becki Toth and T.J. Pieffer, and music by Becki Toth and Brad Kemp, Abduction tells the story of high school senior and student body president Pippa Peterson whose social footing crumbles after she witnesses an alien abduction in her tiny suburban town of Pluto. An alarming wave of speculative misinformation leads her neighbors to hypothesize the light she saw was everything from Bill Gates to the return of Jesus Christ. Pippa must convince everyone of the grave danger they're truly in, all while coming to terms with her cozy hometown's many flaws. Will they escape the clutches of hungry, flesh-eating aliens in time for this year's Corn Fest?

Abduction has received a production in 2017 at Chicago's Stage 773, a concert at Columbia College Chicago in 2018, a reading at the 2019 New York Musical Theater Festival (Audience Choice Runner Up), a workshop production at Musical Theatre Artists of Pittsburgh (MTAP) in 2021, and won Second Prize in New Musicals Inc. (NMI) international Search For New Musicals 2021.

Sunday, April 16 at 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
