September 24, 2018

“Need an escape? Try Starmites...No two ways about it, Starmites is out of this world. The heroine Eleanor is a modern-day Dorothy who dreams of being a super-hero and wakes up to find herself not over the rainbow but up above the stars in a phantasmagorical galaxy." - The Boston Globe
“...an unassuming futuristic rock musical, with sweet lessons about the awkwardness of growing up...It contains enough spoofs of the sci-fi genre to keep adults amused, and enough high-spirited music and action for all...The production...brims with charm and wit..." - New York Newsday
ABOUT THE SHOW
With a book by Stuart Ross and Barry Keating and music and lyrics by Barry Keating, Starmites brings to life the comic-book, sci-fi world of the eighties. With youthful characters, colorful dance numbers, and a pop-infused score with a dash of punk rock, this peppy piece of musical theatre will enchant audiences of all ages with its message of celestial harmony. Meet Eleanor, an introverted teenager, as she finds herself magically teleported to the comic-book world she adores. Starmites is a playful and heartwarming adventure about the struggle of discovering who you are set to the tune of a Steven Spielberg blockbuster world.
