The Cottage Theatre kicked off its 2017 season with a bang. Peter and the Star Catcher is the perfect play to kick off the 35th anniversary of the local theatre. The play is based on a novel of the same name by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson.
The story follows the origin of Peter Pan and the land of Neverland. Lord Leonard Aster and his daughter, Molly, are tasked with bringing a trunk of precious cargo to the Kingdom of Rundoon aboard the Wasp. An identical trunk is served as a decoy and is scheduled to board the Neverland and take a safer route to Rundoon. The Neverland is captained by the sinister Bill Slank, who bought three orphans to help aboard the ship and are to work as helpers to the king of Rundoon. The trunks are switched and the mysterious Queen’s cargo turns out to be more than just shiny treasure. The play takes you right to the beginning of Peter Pan, and all the dots are pleasantly connected.
