2020-2021 Season

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

Join us for A Virtual Christmas Carol

Saturday, December 12th at 7:00 p.m.

Directed by George Canady

Starlight’s Christmas season will sparkle with this new virtual twist on everyone’s favorite holiday classic! Disney writers Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus have struck the perfect balance with this traditional telling, updated to modern times and all done via video conferencing!

Narrated by Charles Dickens, Scrooge is as tight-fisted and mean as ever, creating a life of hardship for his loyal employee, Bob Cratchit and his family. It takes the ghost of his old business partner, Jacob Marley, and three Christmas spirits to take him — virtually, of course! — on a journey of self-discovery and growth.

Cast List coming soon...
