A prequel to the Peter Pan story, “Peter and the Starcatcher” is a play by Rick Elice, based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Limestone’s production is being directed by Dr. Tim Baxter-Ferguson. It is the account of Peter and his friends and their adventure that takes Peter from a mundane orphan boy from England to an immortal flying boy on the magical island of Never Land.
Peter and his group of friends from St. Norbert's Home for Wayward Boys are taken to the ship Never Land. They will call the ship home for several weeks, until they reach their ultimate destination in Rundoon to be servants to the evil King Zarboff the Third. However, things do not go as has been planned for the orphan boys and the crew of the Never Land. The most feared pirate to ever have sailed the seas, Black Stache, has caught wind of a great treasure aboard the Never Land's sister ship, the Wasp.
Black Stache, who will later become Captain Hook, leads his band of pirates to do battle with the crew of the Wasp only to find that they have been tricked. The real treasure is onboard the Never Land.
As a part of the production, the Limestone College Theatre Department will be producing the sets, costumes, and lights “sustainably,” which means the Theatre Department is using recyclable, reusable, and social conscious materials to build the production.
There will be an art auction to benefit local economic, social, and environmental initiatives in the local community. Each night of the show’s run will be dedicated to a different area organization by collecting donations, and the proceeds from the art sales benefitting non-profit organizations around the world.
The Limestone production this week features a 14-member cast.
