NEWSROOM POST: LAMBERTVILLE, NJ
(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) – Music Mountain Theatre’s 2023 season continues this Friday with Peter and the Starcatcher, a humorous and fantastical backstory for the beloved character of Peter Pan and his arch-nemesis, Captain Hook. The production is an imaginative play based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Music Mountain’s production opens February 24, playing on weekends through March 12. Show times are Fridays at 8 PM, Saturdays at 3 PM and 8 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM.
In Peter and the Starcatcher, we meet a young orphaned child on the high seas simply called Boy because, in the absence of a mother and a father, he was never given a name. He, along with his mates, has been shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island, knowing nothing of the mysterious trunk on board in the captain’s sea cabin containing precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, Boy’s sad and lonely world is turned upside down when he is discovered by Molly, a precocious Starcatcher-in-training and daughter of a famous star catcher.
Molly is on a mission to save the world and protect a treasure trunk filled with magical star stuff from getting into the hands of evil and greedy pirate Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own. As they travel aboard the Neverland ship headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love, friendship and forge an unbreakable bond. Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the Neverland you never knew. “This is a celebration of youth and of the power of theater to inspire children and adults alike.”
Casting for the MMT production includes Riley Frankhouser as Boy/Peter, Suzanne LaGreca as Molly, Louis Palena as Black Stache, Jordan Brennan as Smee, along with Alex Klein, Cyrus Carter, John Fischer, Michael Gearty, David McCloughan Jr., Tyler Brennan, Jeff LaGreca, Roger Madding, Mike Prikril and Colby Langweiler.
