Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens – 2017
January 6 – January 28, 2017
(No Performance Jan. 21)
Directed by Alison Gilbreath & Dennis Curry
Synopsis: As the audience settle back for an evening of cosmic cabaret, all is not well at Saucy Jack’s… The evil shadow of a serial killer looms over the bar; cabaret acts are being killed off one by one, found stabbed by the heel of a sequined slingback shoe. The staff at the bar are terrified but their boss, Saucy Jack himself, doesn’t seem that bothered by the threat of murder or the tragic loss of his cabaret acts – he’s more concerned it’ll be bad for business. We meet and hear the dreams and fears of some of the characters in the bar: down-trodden waitress Booby Shevalle, talented young saxophonist Sammy Sax, willing barman Mitch Maypole and eccentric regular at the bar, Dr. Willhelm von Whackoff. There is much excitement at the explosive arrival of Chesty Prospects, a plastic smuggling outlaw: there’s an eco-war going on in this part of the galaxy and fashionable fabrics like bubble-wrap have been made illegal. Chesty charms the bar, talks business with Jack and heralds the arrival of The Space Vixens who hit the ground singing their dance anthem ‘Glitter Boots Saved My Life’. These super fashion crime fighters from a groovier galaxy are part celebrity, part super-hero: strong, sexy, liberated…and all woman! Their mission is to fight crime and liberate the universe harnessing the Power of Disco. The audience join these sassy space cops as they arrive on Frottage III to uncover the Slingback Killer and watch as they are drawn into a cosmic underworld where their unique powers promise justice, hope and unadulterated funk!
