The Magic Telescope - An Astronomy Play by David Hearn

The Magic Telescope was an astronomy play to be distributed on DVD, as an astronomy outreach offering.
Although the DVD never made it to market due to legal issues, the music from the play is available here.

The marketing hook line was:
Join us on a rollicking adventure to the mountains of the moon, and come along with Sara, Molly, and Brooke, the Magic Telescope girls. Molly has just received a new telescope for her birthday. But what she doesn’t realize is that it has magical powers, even beyond her wildest dreams...

Lyrics

Looking out, into the Stars
See all the Planets like Saturn and Mars
So come with us and You will see
Magic takes you everywhere you want to Be

So Make a Wish - Point to a Star
Its really close even when it Looks so far
So Come with us and You will see
Magic takes you everywhere you want to be
So Pack your Bags - It's Time for Fun
Our Space Adventure has just Begun

Yeah the Magic Telescope will Be our Friend Tonight
Oh the Magic Telescope will Show us Celestial Sights
Yeah the Magic Telescope will Take us There you see
Yeah the Magic Telescope will Take us There, You and Me

Sara's Theme

Song Story & Credits

In the movie, this is the character theme for Sara, the older sister of Brooke.
Sara knows a good bit about astronomy due to learnings from her father, who is an amateur astronomer.
This theme is played when Sara is asking her Dad if they can visit Molly, and they discuss a "special" eyepiece he has,
which is the magic eyepiece that will let the Magic Telescope transport them to the Moon.
