Overview

Shy teenager Eleanor has built a fantasy world around the sci-fi comic books she collects. To the distress of her mother, she has learned to avoid the pains of growing up by escaping into fantasy, imagining herself to be an unrecognized superhero. When she is mysteriously thrust into the Website World of her favorite comic book, Eleanor is drawn into the conflict between Shak Graa, Arch-Creep of Chaos, and the Starmites, guardian angels of Innerspace. She turns out to be the legendary Milady, teen superhero who must lead the Mites on their Quest to save the Galaxy. Standing in her way are a colorful assortment of Bowie-esque villains including the delightfully flamboyant Diva, Queen of Innerspace and her Banshee warriors - Destiny's Childish sirens with a ravenous hunger for Boy Bands. With the help of hip-hop heartthrob Space Punk, Eleanor learns to own up to the inner power she has always denied, defeating her foes and conquering the evil force of the "Cruelty."

Starmites (High School) is streamlined and upgraded for maximum fun and effectiveness 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, for student actors.
