Stars Within Reach Presents
A Musical for grades PreK-4th
based on the book by Maria Dismondy
The Reviews Are In!
“My family and I saw the final production of Spaghetti In A Hot Dog Bun on its tour through Michigan. It was dynamite and you could have heard a pin drop in the room of 500+ staff and students watching the show. I read the script in the past and heard the music but seeing the musical on stage? Priceless! The message is so MUCH MORE powerful than my book!!! Through singing, dancing and lots of laughter, children hear about the importance of celebrating what makes us different! Thank you Stars Within Reach for getting my message out there to even MORE children around the country!!! You did an amazing job of bringing my characters to life!”
Spaghetti In A Hot Dog Bun
"Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun was an incredible performance. It taught our students how to deal with situations that they might encounter in their own lives. It kept our students engaged during the entire performance. Casey and her staff were wonderful to work with and I would welcome them back at our school any time."

"Kids will surely benefit from seeing this today! Great Job!"
"Highly entertaining with a heart felt message."
“As the only professional dinner theatre in the Lehigh Valley, we are very selective in allowing outside productions to perform on our stage. We recently had the pleasure of welcoming Stars Within Reach Productions and their presentation of “Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun.” Needless to say, every aspect of their organization and production was a joy. The actors were polite and professional, the show advance was straightforward, easy to understand, and very accommodating, and most importantly, the show was wonderful! We received rave reviews from our guests expressing their complete satisfaction with their experience during “Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun.” We have already approached Stars Within Reach Productions about possible future engagements at our theatre.”

"The overall message is something I would love to see brought to my child's school."
"Great singing and lots of laughs for both young and old!"
“...the characters leapt from the pages of the book both visually and emotionally as Stars Within Reach Productions took the stage. The musical adaptation of Maria Dismondy's children's book was simply fun and delivered a message so very important to, not only children but to everyone as it celebrates the importance of individuality and acceptance. Punctuated with music and dance the performance captivated the audience and provoked spontaneous support for Lucy in her struggle to remain true to her values while being bullied.
I would encourage all children to see this delightfully encouraging lesson disguised in an entertaining and spirited performance.”
