Peter and the Starcatcher is a play based on the 2004 novel Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson and adapted for the stage by Rick Elice.  The play premiered on Broadway in 2012 and won nine Tony Awards, including the top award for “Best Play” that year.

Special guest director is Anna Andersen (Artistic Director for Port Angeles Fine Arts Center and Clallam Mosiac). Anderson asks, “What is the magic that transforms our world and brings our dreams to life? If we found a trunk full of star stuff, how would we put it to use? For young theater participants everywhere, the answer is easy.  Star stuff is imagination, and we will use it, along with our theatrical ingenuity, to make the world a little bit richer.”

The play includes music but is not a full-fledged musical as last fall’s Little Shop of Horrors.  Musical numbers are directed by PAHS senior Madelynne Jones.

Set design by Shawne Johnson, PAHS art instructor, and PAHS art students.

Technical direction provided by Patric McInnis, PAHS theatre technology instructor. 

Produced by Kelly Lovall-Jones, PAHS English instructor.

Peter and the StarCatcher

The story is an adventure on the high seas and on the faraway Mollusk Island. 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 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 with the Lost Boys headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love and friendship and forge an unbreakable bond.
