Peter and the Starcatcher

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

If you are interested in participating on the tech crew for the one-act, please fill out the tech interest form before Monday, December 11th.

Once again, I want to congratulate you all on your hard work and dedication to our production. Keep in mind that all artistic feedback is subjective and there are many factors that contribute. I hope you’ll use this as an opportunity to both feel encouraged and find the areas where you can continue to grow as young artists! Please meet in the choir room following the LoftPAC meeting tomorrow (Friday) to go over our feedback together.

I’m available for any and all questions and continue to be as proud of you as ever.

Thank you so much to all who auditioned this week! Simply put it was amazing to see all of the talent that the Loft Stage has! Please know that casting is one of the hardest parts of the process for me as a director. Especially since I can only have twelve folks in the cast. I encourage anyone who was not cast to join us on Friday for the tech meeting. If you are cast we start tomorrow at 3:30 in the black box!
