Wenatchee-native Alex Stroming will show the first performances of her original musical “Out There” at the Beacon Hill Grange, 323 Easy St., starting Friday.
The 13-person cast is a mix of Wenatchee Valley locals ranging from 11 to 20 years old.
The play is about a little girl who wants to be an astrophysicist. Cast members will tell the story of the girl as she builds a space portal and brings in another girl from a planet beyond earth.
Stroming, who has been working independently on the play, said she thought up the musical during the COVID-19 pandemic when theaters across the country closed. “I just kind of thought, ‘Well, I need to do something to keep that part of my brain alive.’”
This is very much a passion project and includes strong female characters, she said.
Those interested in watching the musical can see it on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are by donation.
