Futuristic Starmites ends run at Eccles Center

Park City High School students performed four showings of the Musical Starmites at the Eccles Center for Performing Arts, with the last performance on Nov. 13.

The musical, directed by Nichole Madison, in her first year of teaching theater, told the story of Eleanor (played by junior Breanne Briggs), a shy teen, who becomes a character in her favorite comic book story. She, the heroine, joins the Starmites to save the Universe from evil forces. Robert O’Donnell, a junior, played Shak-Graa, and designed the set for Starmites.

"It’s so cool Nichole brought us a rock musical," said O’Donnell. "She’s awesome."

Other lead players included Hunter Brown, as Space Punk, and Gabi Caro, as Diva.

A preview of the show was given to Park City High students during the visit of Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. on Wednesday, Nov. 8.

Barry Keating and Stuart Ross wrote the musical.
