STAR STARS: The Franchise Awakens

‘Once upon a time, in a theatre near you… Star Stars: The Franchise will awaken!

Loot Blockbuster has vanished! In his absence the sinister First Chapter has bombarded the galaxy with disappointing prequels…

Manitou Highschool fall drama presentation.

Manitou Opera House

Performance Dates:

  • Friday, October 25 – 7:00 PM
  • Saturday, October 26 – 3:00 PM

“Long, long ago, in a theater near you, there was a saga that thrilled generations of moviegoers – but then the dark time came, and the prequels depressed the galaxy. Now a brave band of heroes on a quest to make new Star Stars movies must battle the sinister First Chapter, and the only ones who can help are the heroes of the original trilogy. Can an enthusiastic fangirl, a reformed Scooper Trooper, and a highly marketable robot awaken the power of the Franchise? A loving, loopy parody of fandom and a certain space adventure.”

Performances by the Manitou Sr. High Xplor Drama Troupe.
