MOONSPLASH

The Story

(Based on 1969/70 LTM National Pantomime “Moonshine Anancy”)

Twenty five years after the first Mission to the Moon, Jah-Jah Soul is anxious to return. He is pleased when Ambrozine who led the first mission returns to make up another crew for the return trip. This time she has transformed herself into Iris H. Linen and is pulling style more than ever, to the disgust of her old friend Miss Corpie.

Miss Corpie is not enthusiastice about a return visit to the lunar landscape. She would rather stay home and bake pudden and live quietly in her village where the residents include the basketball trio of Jump Shot, Slam Dunk and Three Pointer. They would like to go to the Moon if only to test Gravity. Despite setbacks, Moonsplash Two does take off for the return to the Moon, carrying on board a stowaway, the strange creature know to one and all as Loona Moona. With Lt. Max at the controls and his fiancé Diana, who is Miss Linen’s personal assistant at his side, Moonsplash Two is piloted into the sky to land eventually on the Moon.

Soon after their arrival the trouble begins. Moon King and Moon King Wife are not too happy to see Earth People whose presence always brings problems. By the time Moon King is ready to deport the earth people, Miss Corpie comes to the rescue and sves the day with her special skills. The Mission returns to earth… and Moon King and his people hope they will stay so that hey can get on with their lunar lives.
