Peter and the Starcatcher
The HERE Arts Center
December 6th to December 15th
Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a young orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair; along with discovering who you are and the bonds of friendship and love.
The EPIC Players use the stage to elevate the talented voices of artists living with neuro-diversities. Featuring over a dozen actors sharing a neuro-inclusive stage and portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, this Peter and the Starcatcher shows the limitless possibilities of imagination and the power of inclusion that can bring a story to life.
Run time: 90 minutes, with intermission
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“I happened to find myself at your opening night performance of Dog Sees God and I wanted to let you all know that I was blown away. The amount of talent and professionalism that I witnessed on that stage was truly magical. Every actor gave their heart and soul in every scene and it really showed. I have never seen such a wonderfully supportive and coherent ensemble. It has been a while since I experienced a group of actors enjoying what they were doing, as much as this cast."
