The townspeople of Flemmington get rocked back on their heels when meteors come crashing down from space. Amidst all of the excitement and chaos, three teenage girls find the meteorites and discover the special powers that come along with them. The girls use these space rocks to their advantage to control the townspeople, including the Gaggle of Geeks, the phone-obsessed tweens, and the old lady who thinks everything is evil. The story culminates with the meteorites being used against each other during an epic battle to determine which one is the most powerful. This one-act musical comedy has a flexible cast of 25+ speaking roles, with room to expand for more actors as needed. There are 10 original songs, including large group numbers like "Welcome to Flemmington", "A Meteor, Right?" and "Puppet Master" as well as solo and small group songs such as "I Love My Phone", "Destiny" and "The Game of Love". The running time is one hour.
STEVE FLOWERS TALKS ABOUT
A METEOR, RIGHT?
I wrote "A Meteor, Right?" because I wanted to give as many young people as possible a chance to have a significant role in a musical production. This musical has 30 speaking roles, all with multiple lines, and over 20 of the roles have solo parts in songs. My biggest challenge was creating so many characters with lines that still contributed to the overall story without seeming like it was excessive. I think I enjoyed composing the songs the most. I tried to write them all in different musical styles like rock, pop, jazz, rap, reggae and even some dub step. I really set out to make this musical fun for the actors to perform, fun for the audience to watch, and to make everybody laugh!
