Get ready to be magically whisked away to the “Neverland” you never knew, as Farmers Alley Theatre closes its 9th season with the joyous and imaginative Peter Pan prequel, PETER AND THE STARCATCHER – running July 21st through August 6th at the Little Theatre on Oakland Drive. Winner of 5 Tony Awards, this brilliantly adapted play with music will make you feel like a kid again, while still managing to pull on every last one of your heartstrings.
All aboard for the journey of a lifetime! Travel far, far away and discover the hidden secrets of Neverland including the backstory of how our scurvy Captain lost his hand, how a rag-tag group of misfits became the Lost Boys, and how the Boy who never grew up was given his name, Peter. In this highly original and unique comic tale, a dozen actors play more than 100 colorful characters in a swashbuckling adventure that will have you hooked the moment your imagination takes flight!
Farmers Alley Theatre is thrilled to have WMU Alumni Stephen Brotebeck (Spamalot, I Love a Piano) return as our director. Mr. Brotebeck worked on the original Broadway production of Peter and the Starcatcher as a movement associate and has deep insight into the show that no other director could possess. Lori Hatfield (The Toxic Avenger) serves as our Music Director.
The cast is made up of extremely talented actors, including many from last year’s smash hit Spamalot: Rod Cone, Michael P. Martin, Atis Kleinbergs, Stephen Anthony Grey, Dwight Trice and Michael Perlongo. Harrison Bryan (Seymour in Little Shop of Horrors) plays “Boy”, Courtney Martin is “Molly” and Christopher Matsos portrays the hilariously villainous “Black Stache”. Brad Poer, Joey Urreta and Kendall VanAmburg round out this brilliant cast of comedians.
PETER AND THE STARCATCHER runs July 21st thru August 6th at the Little Theatre on Oakland Drive. Tickets reservations can be made by calling the Farmers Alley Theatre Box Office at (269) 343-2727 or online at www.farmersalleytheatre.com. Tickets are $35/$33 on Fri/Sat/Sun and $30/$28 on Thursdays.
