OPPY, a spunky new robotic space exploration rover, lands on Mars with the directive to find signs of previous life, but this little rover has a secret mission: to find her twin sister Spirit who has touched down on the other side of the fourth rock from the sun. Through incidental music, dance and visual design, we watch as OPPY’s objective to send NASA important data lasts long past her projected life span of 90 martian days and she continues to wander the dusty red planet for nearly 15 years searching diligently for her star-crossed sister.
The audience will become NASA in this pandemic friendly, 25-minute, Mars Rover Theatrical Experience and we will ask them to facilitate OPPY's expedition to Mars and beyond.
