Valley of the Voodons

 

Valley of the Voodons is also set in space. The people of Zandrus are plagued by periodic attacks from the evil Voodons who live in a forbidding jungle area within a valley outside the city. Queen Fara has found the whole situation too stressful and is retiring in favour of her daughter Princess Kimnos, to the fury of her son Prince Dronos - a lazy fellow who prefers to surf with his friends. As the Zandrusites are putting the final touches to the coronation celebrations, the Voodons attack the city and capture Princess Kimnos and Prince Dronos. Two buskers then arrive shortly afterwards and offer to rescue the royal pair from the Voodons lair.

Meanwhile, in Voodon Valley, the creatures, in cohorts with a land despoiler Baron Wastes, are contructing a machine that will manufacture magdonite - a deadly substance that can be used in the tip of intergalactic warheads. The buskers manage to gain entrance into the Princess's prison and after a series of table turning incidents, turn the machine against Baron Wastes and the Voodon leader Stark. Peace and harmony is then established on Planet Zodark.

 

 

VALLEY OF THE VOODONS has a conservationist theme with some great musical numbers, one of which, the finale "Light a Candle" is very popular with school choirs at music festivals. Like STARBLAZE, the show is suitable for junior high, high school and theatre groups seeking a production that is ideal for family audiences.
