Peter and the Starcatcher
Peter and the Starcatcher shares a thrilling secret with its audience: how a lonely orphan boy became the legendary Peter Pan. At the height of the British Empire, the queen commissions the stalwart Captain Robert Falcon Scott to deliver a trunk of mysterious starstuff to the country of Rundoon on his ship, the Wasp. She also sends the less scrupulous Captain Slank to deliver a decoy trunk on his less scrupulous ship, the Neverland. Slank, however, has other plans. He surreptitiously swaps the cargo and purchases three orphan boys to help him spirit away the treasure. But even Captain Slank has no inkling of what awaits them all on the high seas—an adventure that features flying cats, mermaids, and a crocodile who brings finger-licking to a whole new level.
Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, this new musical features 12 actors inhabiting more than 100 roles as they fly high, buckle swashes, and put a new spin on J.M. Barrie’s beloved fable about growing up. Those classic themes shine through the stage version of the story, which was awarded five Tonys and caused Ben Brantley to rave in the New York Times: “With grown-up theatrical savvy and a child’s wonder at what it can achieve, Peter and the Starcatcher floats right through the ceiling of the physical limits imposed by a three-dimensional stage.”
Milwaukee Repertory Theater
Every year the staggering scope of the Milwaukee Repertory Theater spans 11 plays—and more than 600 performances. Since first raising its curtain in 1954 as the Fred Miller Theatre, each season has been packed to the brim with both classic and contemporary favorites from Broadway and beyond. The 2016/17 season, for instance, includes productions of McGuire (yes, that Basketball McGuire), The Glass Menagerie, and Jane Eyre. As if this weren't a packed enough calendar, the Rep also hosts regular cultural events, offers classes for grownups and young adults, and manages to remember the birthday of every single person in Milwaukee.
