The Last Starfighter is Now Ready to Launch!
That's right, the stage musical version of the cult 1980s film has arrived!--with a book by Fred Landau and music and lyrics by Skip Kennon (based on the screenplay by Jonathan Betuel). Teenager Alex's life in a trailer park takes an unexpected turn when he breaks a video game record, and it may just be up to him to save the universe! This amazing new musical is available in two versions: a full-length version appropriate for middle school and older, and the one-act family version suitable for audiences of all ages.
4+ males, 4+ females (8-40+ performers possible).
High school and older performers, middle school and older audiences.
A world full of teen characters, ranging from a lonely short-wave radio DJ to a modern Romeo and Juliet to the writer of a most unusual letter, try to balance their fears and dreams as the rest of the world sleeps.
