The Play

Announcing this year’s play…..

The Adventures of Captain Starblaster is an action-packed, sci-fi spoof packing a hilarious punch!  Ten thousand years in the future, the galaxy stands in peril – hostile aliens, sinister thugs, and strange forces lurk at every turn.  But one man stands between the galaxy and those who would do it harm…Captain Starblaster, defender of the galaxy!  Will Captain Starblaster and his trusty sidekick (and his trusty sidekick’s trusty sidekick and his fearless crew) thwart the evil plans of Colonel Chaos and his goons?  Will the galaxy be saved?  Will there be enough Galaxy Flakes cereal for everyone?  With songs ranging from gospel ode to evil scheming, and from a doo-wop lament to a rousing alien dance extravaganza, this musical soars along with energy and quirky characters galore.  It doesn’t get campier – or more fun – than this!
