DURYEA — The Phoenix Performing Arts Centre will hold performances of”Starlight Express” from Friday, Sept. 16 to Sunday, Sept. 18; Friday, Sept. 23 to Sunday, Sept. 25 and Friday, Sept. 30 to Sunday, Oct. 2.

Friday and Saturday shows begin at 7 p.m. and Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m.

“Starlight Express” is a rock musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber in which the actors perform wearing roller skates, but the kids will be performing on Heelys.

In the story, a child’s train set magically comes to life, and the various engines compete to become the “Fastest Engine in the World.” The underdog, Rusty the steam train, has little chance until he is inspired by the legend of the Starlight Express, ultimately winning both the race and the heart of first-class coach Pearl.

Price of admission is $10 per person and tickets can be reserved by calling 570-457-3589.

If handicap seating is required, inform the theater when reserving tickets.
