A musical about going to the future and back
Book by Julie Casselman
A commissioned musical, performed by the students of Gateway Academy’s MainStage Musical Theatre Camp
Welcome to GEARS, the “Gateway Exploration, Adventure, and Research Scientists” hub – a place where innovation, experimentation and scientific phenomenon thrive. When a catastrophic event puts their life’s work in danger, our scientists need to put their heads together to preserve it, setting their sights on Mars. Will the scientists build a rocket ship in time? How do the other planets feel about humans landing on Mars? Is there anything GEARS can learn from their mistakes on earth and live sustainably on a new planet? Infused with creative input from the cast, this zany musical is an exploration in space, growing up and being a kid.
