This sensational musical explores the history of astronomy from the time of the ancients to Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon and beyond, while telling the story of one child's dream to travel through space. Action begins at the school astronomy club's overnight camping trip, which proves quite interesting upon the arrival of a very unexpected visitor. Utilizing a series of clever flashbacks in the form of short vignettes, the story unfolds. The pervading message is that anything is possible if we follow our dreams. Six dynamic songs and a reprise are included in this versatile show that is flexible in cast size, appealing to several grade levels, and adaptable to many performance situations -- and it integrates music and drama with the science and/or history curriculums. Performance time is approximately 40 minutes.
