Strange things happen in Miss Mithers' classroom when her struggling math student, Maxine, creates a "deuteron conductor." The new invention brings alien Alpha Ray to the confused classroom, and he must find a way back to his own side of the universe. Other students find their own ways to help.
The play was chosen for its fun and outlandish characters, as well as its technical effects.
"Instead of princesses this year, we have aliens that come with lighting and sound effects - all designed by our student tech crew," said director and teacher Jillynne Raymond.
"The students have some realistic aspects to their characters, but are mainly exaggerated stereotypes," she adds, "which add to the fun of acting them out and watching them."
