The family-friendly show "Peter and the Starcatcher" comes to Parkland College's Harold and Jean Miner Theatre Nov. 14–24.
Adapted by Rick Elice from the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson,"Peter and the Starcatcher" introduces audiences to the young orphan who would become Peter Pan as well as to some dastardly pirates, some lost boys, and a brave girl named Molly.
A small group of actors will portray a hundred characters in sea battles, jungle adventures, and other exciting escapades. It's a wildly theatrical journey into the imagination for kids, grownups, and those who will never grow up. Mathew Green directs a cast that includes, Jace Jamison, Emaline Johnson, Jess Schlipf, Rachel Hejmanowski, Lincoln Machula, Zoë Dunn, Tommy Howie, Parker Evans, Thom Billam, Laura Alcantara, Stephanie Swearingen, Sam Gegg, and Wesley Bennett.
The Parkland Theatre will hold a talkback immediately following the Nov. 14 show; Green and members of the cast and crew will be on hand to discuss the show and answer audience questions.
