A long time ago…in a galaxy far, far away, is the setting for All Puppet Players latest offering—a puppet-infused space adventure.

Nerds and normies alike rejoice, as every possible sci-fi movie is lampooned in this wacky, puppet centric retelling of one of the greatest film franchises ever made, according to a press release.

Fresh off their totally inappropriate “Fifty Shades of Felt”, the APP brings you “Puppet Wars.” This is the second offering of the 2015 theater season, after having taken up residence at Playhouse on the Park at Viad Corporate Center, located at 1850 N. Central Ave., in Phoenix.

The gang’s all here–in the fur and felt–as The Empire begin its push to crush the Rebel Alliance. Relive all of your favorite moments in puppet form and even get a chance to create your own puppets for our Cantina scene. Families are welcome, as this show is appropriate for all audiences, according to the release.

The show opens on May 15 and runs through May 30.

“This is a show written by a huge nerd for other huge nerds. This is the biggest thing we have ever done and I can’t wait for people to see it. In a few years I may perform this show again, only I think I’ll add a whole bunch of things I can’t afford now, but always intended on having in this one,” said Shaun Michael McNamara, Owner and Artistic Director.
