CLEARFIELD – It will be the “The Neverland You Never Knew.”
The CHS Drama Club will provide a look into just that with its presentation of its fall 2018 play, Peter and the Starcatcher, held at the Clearfield Area Junior-Senior High School on Thursday, Nov. 29, Friday, Nov. 30, and Saturday, Dec. 1.
Shows will begin promptly at 7 p.m. and all tickets are available at the door for $5. No pre-sold ticket sales are offered. The performance lasts approximately 2 hours, 15 minutes with one 15-minute Intermission.
Peter and the Starcatcher provides a humorous and fantastical backstory for the beloved character of Peter Pan and his arch-nemesis Captain Hook.
In this wickedly imaginative play, you meet a poor 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. His sad and lonely world is turned upside down when he meets Molly.
The daughter of famous Starcatcher Lord Aster, the heroine, 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.
As they travel aboard the Neverland ship headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love, friendship and forge an unbreakable bond.
The CHS Drama Club cast includes many talented high school actors and actresses who are working hard to bring this Tony Award-winning play to Clearfield.
Many veterans of the CHS stage are back, such as Jace Kephart as Black Stache, Remington Shugarts as Peter, Herschel Johnson as Smee and Emmalee Marshall as Mrs. Bumbrake to name just a few.
In addition, there are a few new faces in leading roles as well like Taylor Trinidad as Molly, Mason Yocum as Lord Leonard Aster, Benjamin Leighow as Ted and Cruz Wright as Prentiss.
