stagestruck sings: per aspera ad astra: A broadway revue

The Latin phrase "per aspera ad astra" translates to "through hardships to the stars." Looking back over the last year, the hardships we have all endured have seemed overwhelming. Live entertainment helps us all, even if only briefly, to escape the pains and challenges in life. We are overjoyed that a safe avenue for live musical theater has been born! Showcasing some of the best musical theatre moments of Broadway from its golden age to today, the StageStruck Sings kids are thrilled to bring back joy to their community by sharing songs about the hardships in life; the hope of overcoming those hardships; the humor and joy that can still be found amongst them; and the thrill of triumph over them. The stars are within our reach!


Thanks to all who attended, all the StageStruck kids who performed and all who worked behind the scenes who made this return to the stage possible.
