A child?s train set magically comes to life and the various engines compete to become the ?Fastest ? engine in the World?! The underdog, Rusty the Steam train, has little chance until he is inspired by the legend of the ?Starlight Express? and ultimately defeats his arch-rivals ?Greaseball? and ?Electra before going on to win the hand of the lovely first class coach, Pearl. Andrew Lloyd Webber?s STARLIGHT EXPRESS is the fastest and most dynamic musical you will ever experience, however you choose to perform it! The show has a rock / pop score with enormous appeal for teenagers.
