Robert M. Finley Middle School will present its production of “Starmites” on Friday, March 28 and Saturday, March 29 at 7:30 p.m., as well as on Sunday, March 30 at 3 p.m., in the school’s Wunsch Center.

“Starmites” is a Tony-award winning musical that revolves around a shy teenager, Eleanor, who escapes her problems by obsessing about a fantasy world involving science fiction and characters in her comic book collection. To her surprise, she is transported into her fantasy world, where the “Starmites” are the guardian angels of Innerspace and where she finds the strength to become who she is meant to be.

The show stars Lauren Friedman as Eleanor, with a supporting cast that includes Jaliek Dyer a Spacepunk; Julia Abbondonza as Diva; Alondra Schuck as Bizarbara; Joseph Stroppel as Shak Graa; and Steven Bailey, Alex Suozzi, Joshua Filippone, Isaiah James and Elijah James as the Starmites. JoAnn Criblez and Rosita Mallo direct.
