Originally produced by the American Folklore Theatre in Door County, Wisconsin in 2002, Packer Fans went on to play in Green Bay and received this high praise -- "Packer Fans From Outer Space is a wonderful show and should be seen by everyone in Wisconsin, as well as our 'naturalized' brethren around the U.S. who share our devotion to Packers football," says Packers Executive Vice President John Jones.
THE STORY: Based (very) loosely on actual events, PFOS follows the exploits of Juddville fruit farmer Harvey Keister. Harvey, a big fan of the Green Bay Packers, is called upon by a group of Packer aliens to save their planet from the evil Space Bears. Marge, his Chicago Bears-loving wife, fears for his sanity. The actual events that were the inspiration for this offbeat musical are several UFO sightings over the skies of Door County in the Spring of 1952, and the 1953 tie game between the Packers and the Bears.
