All Puppet Players, now in its eighth year, appears to carefully select movies and books and whatnot for spoofing, making sure the works would be improved by an extremely low budget and a cast of puppets, some of whom happen to be pandas, geese, monsters, and pigs. Then again, what wouldn’t be improved by that treatment?

Seminal sci-fi flick Alien starred shucked oysters, pig brains, sheep intestine and kidney, pasta, and K-Y jelly alongside and all over its human actors. That was some good shit, but Alien: A Puppet Show should be even better, at Playhouse on the Park, 1850 North Central Avenue, through Saturday, October 29. For tickets, $23 to $50, call 602-254-2151 or visit tickets.phoenixtheatre.com. Showtime on Saturday, October 22, is 8 p.m.
