House on the Hill Pictures 

Summer, 1947.  An emotional alien girl from an unemotional planet crash-lands in Roswell, where two teenagers, unknowingly in love, hide her in plain sight as the new waitress in the diner, only to discover they have put her in greater danger when a clueless tabloid reporter stranded in Roswell, creates pandemonium with his own "alien invasion", which happens to include romancing whacky "Cousin Aileen." Will it be the story? The girl?

Or intergalactic war? 


Awarded by NMI for Best New Musical  and the recipient of numerous developmental readings including The Thousand Oaks Festival of New Musials and Kansas City Festival of New Muscicals, IHIR has had workshop productions  staged in The New York Music Theater Festival and Stages Festival of New Musicals in Los Angeles.
