An Air Force base, hippies trying to free aliens and a trip 60,000 years back in time - Kinross Wolaroi School's production of Future's Past will have it all this week.
The show follows the adventures of a group of archaeologists digging at Edwards Air Force base, who clash with officers - led by the ever-so-slightly-evil Major Schneider, elders and hippies in the area before discovering a mysterious orb.
The orb, an ancient Najavo artefact, comes to life and sends them hurtling back into the past where, of course, shenanigans ensue.
The musical was written and directed by Kinross teacher Romko Hordynsky, marking a remarkable 31st production for the theatre maestro.
He said the show, which is on at the Orange Civic Theatre on Tuesday and Wednesday for two matinee performances and an evening showing, was "a bit of fun".
"Full credit to the boys and girls, they're keen for it and it's something a bit different."
He said even after three decades of running shows, the appeals for being on stage were the same for students.
"You get confidence from performing in front of a crowd," he said.
"You're developing skills across the curriculum, singing, dancing, a whole heap of skills."
