Peter and the Starcatcher

Middleton High School Theatre presents Peter and the Starcatcher. Performances will run Thursday, Nov. 9 Saturday, Nov.
11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Middleton 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 (a.k.a. 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, weve had a great time creating the
imaginative world of Peter and company, and were looking forward to welcoming our audiences into this adventure,said Kendra
Dando, director, Middleton High School Theatre.
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. Its 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.
