Peter and the Starcatcher coming to Manatee Performing Arts Center

(APRIL 6th – APRIL 23rd, 2017)

(BRADENTON, March 28th, 2017) The Manatee Players’ is proud to present Peter and the Starcatcher as part of their 2016 – 2017 Action through Acting series in Bradenton Kiwanis Studio Theater running February 23rd – March 12th, 2017. This production is in affiliation with Guardian Angels of Southwest Florida as part of The Manatee Players’ Action through Acting initiative designed to build community awareness and give socially relevant issues through live theatrical productions.

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). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. 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.

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.
