The critically acclaimed trio are back in another rip-roaring comedy adventure.

Inspired by the Sci-Fi B-movies of the 1950s, The Thing That Came From Over There is a fast-paced rollicking ride, mixing paranoia, suspense and hilariously gruesome deaths.

It’s Christmas Eve 1912, and as Scott and Amundsen begin their race across Antarctica, the hapless explorer, Captain Reginald Cranston Scot-t-t, has accidentally landed on the wrong side of the continent.

As Cranston and his motley crew prepare to celebrate Christmas before joining the race to the South Pole, a meteor crashes nearby. They set out towards the crash site to investigate – unaware of the danger that awaits not just them, but the whole of planet Earth.

What ancient evil lurks inside the crater? What is the dark secret of the slimy fungus? And what is the horrifying fate of those who encounter the parasitic space worms?

Join three daring actors as they play over 15 roles in 75 minutes of shocks, spine-tingling silliness, and blood-curdling terror.

With comedy and thrills galore, the show features visual gags, verbal wit, giant puppetry, and even a little bit of live music.
