SecondStory Repertory is holding auditions for our June 2022 production of Starmites Pro written by Barry Keating and Stuart Ross. Direction by Buddy Todd. Music Direction by Kim Douglass.
The Story: Shy teenager Eleanor has built a fantasy world around the sci-fi comic books they collect. To the distress of their parent, Eleanor has learned to avoid the pains of growing up by escaping into fantasy, imagining themself to be an unrecognized superhero. When they are mysteriously thrust into the Website World of their favorite comic book, Eleanor is drawn into the conflict between Shak Graa, Arch-Creep of Chaos, and the Starmites, guardian angels of Innerspace. Eleanor turns out to be the legendary Milady, teen superhero who must lead the Mites on their Quest to save the Galaxy. Standing in their way are a colorful assortment of villains including the delightfully flamboyant Diva, Queen of Innerspace and the deadly Banshee warriors.
