ABDUCTION is a new musical comedy from T.J. Pieffer, Brad Kemp, and Becki Toth. High school student body president Pippa Peterson's social footing crumbles after witnessing the alien abduction of a cow in her tiny town of Pluto, Pennsylvania. An alarming wave of speculative misinformation leads her neighbors to hypothesize the light she saw was everything from the government 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 the hungry, flesh-eating aliens in time for this year’s Corn Fest?
