While on a routine mission aboard The Story Ship rocket, Captain Starfield discovers his lead scientist has a been kidnapped by aliens! The audience must help get her back by unraveling musical / mathematical messages. The messages help track her captors through the solar system. Each communication gives us clues as to the alien’s location and how to rescue Sarah. This show is highly interactive with audience participation every two minutes. Kids help by assisting with magic tricks, singing songs, moving to the music, and navigating the rescue rocket with special controls. The set is the inside control room of a space ship with a giant window that shows video animations and holographic images teaching us about Sarah’s amazing journey through our solar system. Students learn facts about space and our solar system as outlined in the curriculum connections in the study guide. The performer adjusts the show content to match grade levels and students special needs. To view an excerpt for this program visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cRI0MwUKFU&t=16s
