Overview

This one act version has a playing time of approximately one hour and twenty five minutes. The original creators have adjusted the story line and musical numbers so that theatre beginners can participate in this wonderful show too. The text has been streamlined and upgraded for maximum fun and clarity for today's audiences, young and old.

This show is designed with students in mind—contemporary songs, funny dialogue, and real heart and soul to the story. Also a great "back story" that can compete with the complexity of Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings, Narnia, Star Wars, and Star Trek all wrapped up in Boy-Band, Girl-Band musical language, simplified for kids.

The simplified harmonies will work for children with limited experience without tampering with the special charm of the Starmites score.

Dreaming her way into a comic book adventure in Innerspace, Eleanor saves the galaxy in this zingy rock musical. It is Eleanor, Spacepunk, the Starmites and the lizard man against the evil Banshees (weird women with dangerous hair-dos) led by Diva and Shak Graa. Diva's entrance song, "Hard to Be Diva," is a guaranteed show stopper. Every space age possibility for light-hearted thrills is thoroughly exploited to delight fun-loving comic book fans.
