Reaching for Starlight

Script developed in partnership with Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal

April 26th to May 5th at the D.B. Clarke Theatre

Reenie wants to dance, like her mother did before her. Along with her classmates, she believes she has what it takes to earn the coveted solo at the year-end recital. But when she discovers that Maestra is not holding everyone to the same standard, Reenie begins a quest to investigate why her friend Maia is being counted out. If competition makes us stronger, then when comes the moment when winning doesn’t always mean coming out on top?

Reaching for Starlight is a story about the way we move in the world. An urgent portrait of a young girl’s journey of breaking barriers and illustrated through the glorious infusion of theatre and ballet, contemporary, and hip hop dance, Reaching for Starlight is a sensorial tour-de-force featuring some of the country’s most dynamic young and established artists together on one stage.

Recommended Ages: 7 and up
