TA Drama Presents “Peter and the Starcatcher”

The Thetford Academy Drama Department is proud to present the Tony Award winning play, Peter and the Starcatcher. This swashbuckling, family-friendly play tells the story of how an unhappy orphan becomes Peter Pan and a flamboyant pirate becomes Captain Hook. Peter and the Starcatcher is a highly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels. With a cast of orphans, British aristocrats, sailors, pirates, and mermaids, Peter and the Starcatcher imaginatively explores the depths of greed and despair and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.

TA’s production features actors Emma Willens, Connor Gaine, Grace Elmer, Zurael Star, Heidi Hewes, Twyla Weinstein, Sam Kraemer, Rayne Waln, Simon Swingforth, Matthew Vivian, Elizabeth Waterman, Henley Cook, Rebecca Osgood, and Whitney Lewis. The technical and backstage team are led by Acadia Cook, Shisi Dai, Hugo  Billiau, Starleigh Fielder, and Gracie Haley-Tobin. The production is directed by Thetford Academy’s new performing arts teacher, Jeff Seabaugh. Performances are November 18-19 at 7:00 p.m. in the Martha Jane Rich Theater. Tickets will be sold at the door, $10 for adults and $5 for students.
