Spring Musical “Starmites” Will Be Out of This World
Purchase your tickets early to attend this year’s pop-rock musical Starmites with performances March 21-24. Tickets are now on sale before and after school in the main office and during all three lunches in the cafeteria.
Starmites is an adventure fantasy with a great musical score that you will not want to miss. Comic book fan Eleanor enters a fantasy where the evil Shak Graa threatens the alternate dimension. Along with a ragtag band of space punk boys, Eleanor tries to defend the galaxy. Along the way they meet up with a tribe of Banshees—demonic girls who crave boy band blood. Can the Starmites save the universe? Will Diva’s daughter ever get married? Will Eleanor be home in time for school? Come see the show to find out!
