Willingham Theater and Willingham Performing Arts Academy Present Classic Neverland Story “Peter and the Starcatcher” LIVE June 10-13, 2021 | Music
(Yadkinville, NC) – The Willingham Theater is excited to present the stage adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s whimsical novel, Peter and the Starcatcher, to celebrate their return to theater! Three orphan boys, one with no name, and the stubborn Molly face off against villainous pirate Black Stache and a dozen others aboard two ocean-swept ships bound for the remote kingdom of Rundoon. Join them all in their frantic race for the Queen’s treasure and an unnamed orphan’s quest for a name and a world to call his own. Watch as a small group of actors bring two seagoing ships – and the sea itself – to life on the intimate stage of the Willingham Theater. An adult sequel to Peter Pan adapted for the stage by Rick Elice. Peter and the Starcatcher is an imaginative origin story for Neverland and its heroes. This show will be presented at the Willingham Theater from June 10 to 12 at 7:30 p.m. and on June 1315 hours.
Peter and the Starcatcher is a tale built on imagination and magic. Theater is a process and a journey. For this reason, the Willingham Performing Arts Academy wants to give you a glimpse of a workshop-meet-stage experience. Come with your imagination at your fingertips and you will leave with a heart filled with magic.
Directed by Jessie Grant / Presented by Willingham Performing Arts Center.
