Cannon Theater Company Presents “Peter and the Starcatcher”!

Peter and the Starcatcher” will be performed this week Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7pm in the CPAC! When this thrilling play opened on Broadway in 2012, Ben Brantley of the New York Times best summed up its appeal: “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.” Bring the whole family to witness the magical, musical tale of how a young adventurer named Molly befriends the nameless, homeless boy who will become Peter Pan. Tickets free for Cannon students, families, and employees.
