Your kids might be coming home soon from school all abuzz about Awesome Allie.Members of the State Fair Community College Theatre Arts program will present the out-of-this-world children’s musical “Awesome Allie: First Kid Astronaut” Nov. 17-21 for area elementary students and at 2 p.m. Nov. 22 for the public in the Stauffacher Theatre on the Sedalia campus.

Yesterday Allie was just a normal kid, but today she’s headed into outer space! With the help of her trusty talking dog Captain Chaos and Rover, the dancing robot from Mars, Allie is on a mission across the solar system to save Earth—and maybe learn some things about science along the way. There’s just one thing; she better be home in time for dinner! I got to talk with the director of the show, Kristen Henning,  and several cast and crew members, about the show and how entertaining it is for kids of all ages.

The show is suitable for young audiences. All tickets are $5 and may be purchased online at their website or email Or, call the Box Office at (660) 596-7387 from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or two hours prior to performance time. Wheelchair seating is available upon request.

Awesomely yours,
