X-Files: The Musical (abbreveated as XFTM) is a musical parody of The X-Files by Lindsay Kerns, Aaron Holmes, And Phillip Malcom from the The Colonel Mustard Amateur Attic Theatre Company.It "pitches itself as a lost episode taking place between seasons four and five. It works as a stand-alone episode but also touches on the overarching story and mythology of the series."[1]

X Files: The Musical" is the seventh production and third backyard musical by The Colonel Mustard Amateur Attic Theatre Company in Lincoln, Nebraska. Millions of people worldwide love The X-Files, and our audacious vision is to transform the show into a full-length theatrical spectacle.

What began as a funny novelty—plays written and performed by a group of friends in the attic of a large Victorian house—has turned into a series of low budget spectacles for a growing group of local friends and fans. More importantly, it's fostered a thriving community drawn together by a mutual love for home-spun theatre and creative living.

After cramming over 100 people into the attic for a play, we knew it was time to move to a new, larger venue: the backyard. That’s where we performed “Jurassic Park The Musical!” in 2009 before a capacity crowd of 250. In the summer of 2010 an even bigger spectacle, “Dr. Quinn: The Musical,” required a larger backyard, and we still barely squeezed in the 450 people who showed up to see it.

We’ve added exciting elements to each new production, and “X Files: The Musical” will be the biggest thing we’ve ever created. (...)
