Sparkle Miser, The

COMEDY/YOUNG AUDIENCES. For millennia, it has been the job of the Sparkle Miser to make stars and place them into the night sky. But making stars is both tedious and time consuming and the Sparkle Miser finds he doesn’t have the strength to make stars anymore. Instead, the Sparkle Miser and his assistant, Bumblenoid, have resorted to stealing the sparkles from the eyes of children and placing them into the sky. One night, a cosmic security guard lands in Julie and Stacy’s bedroom and discovers that the Sparkle Miser has stolen the sparkles from Julie’s eyes. To retrieve Julie’s sparkles, the trio must first visit Shabonna, the keeper of the Cosmic Code, before they can fly to the Sparkle Miser’s floating mansion in outer space. Cosmic chaos and comical characters abound in this delightful show, which is suitable for all ages.
