Ten-year-old Violet is determined to show the world, not to mention the cool kids at school, just how special she is. With the help of her assistant Freddy, she sets out to break a world record, but becomes accidentally extraordinary when she's struck by lightning — twice — and gains control over all things electric. Under the name Miss Electricity, Violet zaps her way through circuits, bullies, and tests, but could lose everything when the power goes to her head.
This 50-minute comedy is sure to delight children in elementary and middle school.
"Miss Electricity was colorful and fast-paced, with lots of action. The audience — young and old — ate it up." — San Diego News Network
