HSU Presents Peter and the Starcatcher

The Theatre, Film and Dance Department at Humboldt State University presents Peter and the Starcatcher, the Tony Award-winning play that upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan boy becomes the legendary Peter Pan.  This production, opening in late October, is the first fully staged production of the 2016-17 Season at HSU.As audience, we learn just how an unnamed orphan becomes Peter Pan, how he ends up in a place called Neverland, how Captain Hook lost his hand, how a big crocodile started to tick from inside and even how Tinkerbell originated.  But there is much more to this production.  Director Rae Robison (Associate Professor of Theatre Arts) saw a bit of the show staged during the Tony Awards on television and was intrigued.  “After reading the book the play is based on,” Robison explains, “I was hooked.  As a director, I’m always drawn to NEW plays which allow you to share a work with an audience that will probably be experiencing it for the first time.” The play has been described as a children’s story for adults but has proven very appealing to kids as well.  “This production is suitable for ages two to two hundred,” Robison continues.  “This play is about friendship, family, and finding your place in the world. Making those connections that complete you and discovering what really matters. Sure there may be pirates, and adventure, alligators and danger, and even love along the way—but that’s what makes life so exciting.”

Featuring thirteen actors playing more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher boasts terrific performers, hilarious mermaids, beautiful spectacle, and even starstuff.  The production uses creative stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.  As the character Molly says in the play, “To have faith is to have wings.” Don’t miss this North Coast premiere intended for all ages.  The production opens October 21 and continues October 22, 27, 28, and 29 in the Van Duzer Theater on campus.  The show begins at 7:30 p.m.  There will be two matinee performances beginning at 2:00 p.m. on Sundays October 23 and 30.  General admission is $10.00.  Student and Seniors are $8.00.  Parking is free on weekends.  For tickets, please call 707-826-3928.  For more information, call 707-826-3566.
