Mount Greylock Regional School presents “Peter and the Starcatcher” in the school’s auditorium at 1781 Cold Spring Road in Williamstown. Performances are Friday, May 12, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 13, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.
“Peter and the Starcatcher” imagines how Peter became Pan, came to Neverland and met the future Captain Hook. Taking place on two ships and a magical island, this comedy is playful and exciting enough to amuse children of all ages, but also has plenty of jokes for grown-ups, too, including jabs at the British Empire and a reference to Philip Glass. Come sit back, enjoy the dancing mermaids and just be a kid for a while.
Based on Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the Tony-winning “Peter and the Starcatcher” was written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. It’s directed by Mount Greylock alumna Amanda Bell Goldmakher and performed, choreographed and designed by MGRS students.
