Three shows for Peter and the Starcatcher

Printer-friendly version

MHS Theatre will perform Peter and the Starcatcher on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center.

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (also known as Peter Pan). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair ... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.

"Peter and the Starcatcher is a wonderful story for people of all ages. As cast and crew, we've had a great time creating the imaginative world of Peter and company, and we're looking forward to welcoming our audiences into this adventure," MHS Theatre director Kendra Dando said.

“We are also thrilled that this show was selected as the showcase performance at the Wisconsin High School Theatre Festival on Nov. 17 at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. It’s a great honor because only two schools throughout the state are selected for the showcase.''

The play is based on the book series Peter and the Starcatcher, which is a prequel to Peter Pan. It tells the story of how Peter got his name, Hook lost his hand and how the characters originated and developed on the island.

Reserved tickets are available on the Middleton Theatre website. Tickets can also be purchased at the door before show time. Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors.
