Main Stage

When an eccentric homeschooler arrives at Mica Area High School, hallways buzz with texts, whispers fill the air, and 11th grader Leo Borlock’s life is changed forever. Based on the critically-acclaimed young adult novel by Jerry Spinelli, the author of everyone’s favorite Maniac Magee, Stargirl celebrates first love, non-conformity, and the similarities that connect us all. Best appreciated by ages 12 and up.

The running time for this production is approximately 2 hours with one 15 minute intermission.

Join the actors after every performance to discuss the making of the production.
