theatre company specifically for 14-18 year olds, will present Peter And The Starcatcher this summer
PETER & 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.
Featuring a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.
Young people have always been important to our mission and our productions. This year we're launching the Youth Ensemble - a sister company to our Main Stage theatre company of 14-18 year olds artists - who will perform and stage the award-winning production of Broadway play Peter and The Starcatcher for our 2021 10th Anniversary Summer Season!
Enrolled participants will be completely immersed in the professional theatre scene from auditions all the way through to performance.
They'll begin to build first-hand knowledge of theatre etiquette and will gain the valuable experience of putting on a show in collaboration with industry professional theatre-makers.
Participants will also have the opportunity to access masterclasses with our versatile, international company of professional main-stage performers
They will also have the opportunity to grow an industry based network of their own.
Applications for our 2021 Youth Ensemble have now closed.
Be sure to join our mailing list to get the latest on all opportunities at Scranton Shakes.
