A cast and crew of middle school students put on an original play about cosmic heroes and deadly aliens.

Genre: Fantasy, Science Fiction


“I am Exoplanetary Janet, Traveler of the Cosmos.” She raised her arm and swept her hand slowly from left to right.

There was whispering at the back of the class. Two girls, so thick-as-thieves that they were more like one two-headed girl, glanced at Janet, then resumed whispering. One of them, Rhine, raised her hand.

“Then why are you dressed like a cowgirl, Miss Winsome?” she asked.

“Why not?”

Episode art description: Digital drawing.  Foreground bottom, the silhouettes of figures seen from the back, mostly from shoulder-up, and surrounded by a glow of light. They are facing a stage.  On stage at left is a girl, on her knees with arms outstretched. She wears a long coat and a hat. In front of her is a small worm-like creature with one large eye which is looking at her.  In front of the girl is a small puppet of a worm-like creature.  In front of that small creature is a larger worm puppet whose body takes up the whole length of the stage. A pair of humanoid legs can be seen under the large worm puppet. Lying along the worm’s back, holding onto it is a boy wearing a clear helmet with a hose leading to an attachment on his belt. Alongside the large worm is another smaller worm. Behind that smaller worm is a tall robotic figure. Behind the robot is a kid in a costume that looks like hollow metal tubes from which a carrot head emerges. Behind them is a background painted with hills and a vague building in the distance. Above left hang clouds and a moon. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lies over the image.
