Kentridge Players are in their second week of performances of the madcap musical “Peter and the Starcatcher.” The show is directed by Jennifer Grajewski and Eia Waltzer with music direction by John Kelleher.
The 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 the 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.
Performances are at 7 pm Wednesday through Saturday, Nov. 15-18. An additional Saturday matinee is at 2 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for Seniors (over 65), and $5 for children under 10.
All performances are at Kentridge’s Performing Arts Center.
