OLu’s rendition of the Tony-winning play Peter and the Starcatcher will hit the Nechita stage this weekend.
Based on the best-selling novels, Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan boy becomes the legendary Peter Pan.
According to Director Chelsey Everhart, “The audience should expect the unexpected.”
From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants, to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcherplayfully explores the depths of greed and despair, along with the bonds of friendship and love.
“This production is unlike anything we've done before at Orange Lutheran,” Everhart said. “It's a fantasy that relies on the audience to use their imagination!”
“In Peter and the Starcatcher we get to discover how Peter, Tinkerbell, Captain Hook, and the rest of the characters we know and love came to be. It is a story about growing up and growing apart. This show challenges us to remember what is was like to simply… play!”
Most of all, Everhart hopes attendees will enjoy this “opportunity to be a kid again.”
Peter and the Starcatcher opens Saturday, January 21 at 7 p.m., and will show on Sunday, January 22 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. Tickets are priced at $15.
