The Garden City High School drama department will present “Peter and the Star-Catcher,” at 7 p.m. Feb. 16 and 17, along with a matinee at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 17 and 18 in the school's auditorium, 2720 Buffalo Way Blvd.
“Peter and the Starcatcher,” a family-friendly production, upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan).
A theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors Roger Rees and Alex Timbers and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, "Peter and the Starcatcher" explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.
Ticket prices for the show are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the door, or by visiting www.gchsdrama.booktix.com. The box office will open one hour before the show begins.
