Holland Hall Upper School Theatre invites you to a this year’s fall production of Peter and the Starcatcher

Based on the popular children’s novel of the same name, Peter and the Starcatcher provides a humorous and fantastical backstory for the beloved character of Peter Pan and his arch-nemesis Captain Hook. In this wickedly imaginative play, we meet a poor orphaned child on the high seas simply called Boy because, in the absence of a mother and a father, he was never given a name. His sad and lonely world is turned upside down when he meets Molly. The daughter of famous Starcatcher Lord Astor, our heroine is on a mission to save the world and protect a treasure trunk filled with magical star stuff from getting into the hands of evil and greedy pirate Black Stache. As they travel aboard the Neverland ship headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love, friendship and forge an unbreakable bond.

When: Oct. 24-26,
Times: Doors at 6:30 pm, Show at 7 pm
Where: Walter Arts Center, Newman Theatre
Price: $7 Students, $10 Adults
