When a young boy falls asleep while playing with his toy trains, he has a dream in which the trains have come alive. A championship is being held in the dream, to see which train is the fastest. Many trains take part — Greaseball, a diesel engine train, Electra, an electric engine train, Hashimoto, a Japanese Shinkansen Bullet Train, and others. The protagonist, though, is Rusty, a steam engine train, who is the underdog because of steam engine having become obsolete compared to diesel.
When they all start racing, Rusty keeps losing badly and constantly prays to the mythical Starlight Express to help him win the race as well as the heart of the observation car called Pearl. With a ton of politics, backstabbing and sabotaging threatening to ruin Rusty’s chance at achieving glory, will he be able to overcome the obstacles and find true love? Get your Starlight Express musical tickets to find out!
The Andrew Lloyd Webber masterpiece will have you tapping your foot and humming along with iconic songs like AC/DC, Call Me Rusty, Light at the End of the Tunnel, He Whistled at Me, the unforgettable Starlight Express and more.
