A melodrama with something for everyone - from slapstick farce to allusions to old Western songs to anti-drug messages to unadulterated balderdash. Arranged in 18 rapid-fire scenes with 20 songs, it tells the time-honored, predictable story of a rancher who is abducted by alien body-snatchers, thus forcing his son to lay aside his study of classical mythology to save the ranch by driving a herd of 10,000 puppies - make that doggies - 60 miles across a barren wasteland haunted by masked marauders, villainous morticians, and his aunt Jocasta, Professional Woman. Fortunately, the Lady in Black comes to his rescue and the two, aided by Ah Sang So Hai (former Professional Woman), get the job done. Throw in a flock of ducks, a stage-struck caballero named Oliver Olay, and a few sticks of dynamite - and ya got yerself some Real The-Ater. Script includes detailed prop and costume plots as well as instructions for presenting the play in an abbreviated 60-minute version, if desired. A guaranteed audience pleaser.
