STARZ, THE MUSICAL (PIANO-VOCAL SCORE) includes the 14 songs from the show, listed below.

STARZ is written especially with theater lovers in mind and explores theater from the ARTISTS' point of view. The actors give voice to a variety of performer characters in this hilarious and often moving "drama-dy" that seeks to edu-tain audiences about how and why artists come to the theater-and often stay for a lifetime. The complete show includes 34 scenes and 14 songs, and runs approximately two hours with an intermission. It can be performed with or without a break.

STARZ is a review format show, with a mix of funny to poignant scenes inspired by students and instructors attending the Texas Thespian Festival. The playwrights hope it will be widely used in productions open to a wide range of artists, from students to professionals, and especially in arts-funding endeavors.

STARZ can be cast with any age performer, but age 11 to adult is recommended. This is an ensemble show, with no specific "stars" and addresses the issue of "type casting" in a realistic but also humorous way. Therefore, a mix of body types, ages and genders offers the most fun and flexibility.

The show can be mounted with as few as 12 ADULT SINGER/ACTORS doubling roles, or 20 FEATURED PLAYERS plus a CHORUS. All featured performers may also perform in group/ensemble numbers with solo phrases/choruses assigned individually as wished, and some non-singing roles. Only a few characters are specifically male/female, with most open to either pending your best casting options.

Characters are self-described MISFITS, who find a supportive and accepting family in the theatre. They include WALLY and his sports-booster DAD; the reluctant SHIRLEY and her gung-ho pushy stage MOM; the class clown SHECKY and nerdy CHANCE; BUBBA dragged to auditions by his girlfriend, know-it-all LANCE, deeply shy POINDEXTER, outgoing cheerleader BERTHA, and all the TECHIES including PIANIST, STAGE MANAGER, VOCAL COACH, CHOREOGRAPHER and DIRECTORS.

A script/vocal score is also available, as well as a rehearsal/performance audio CD of the full orchestration. For licensing information contact shojai-steele-plays @ (no spaces) with STARZ in the subject line.
