Starfall

Starfall is a musical fairy tale for young audiences. The story follows two friends from different worlds trying to understand each other. Celia is a StarHanger; every night she hangs up the stars in the night sky, each containing a dream. Ash is a TreeKeeper; they (Ash is to be played by an actor of any gender) have never seen the sky before, as all TreeKeepers live below-ground, tending and organizing the roots of all of the plants. On the evening of a great flood, Ash’s forest floor washes away in part, giving them passage to the Earth’s surface. Ash sees the night sky for the first time, and meets Celia. The two become friends, and struggle to understand each other while not being able to see each other. They must learn to show their friendship for one another in new ways. In the end, the two learn that they can be friends from far away, and that everyone has a different perspective from which they see the world.
