The cast of “Peter and the Starcatcher”.


Yadkin Arts Council’s Willingham Theater proudly presents the stage adaptation of Dave Barry’s and Ridley Pearson’s whimsical novel, “Peter and the Starcatcher” at 7:30 p.m. on April 21 and 22 and 3 p.m. on April 23.

Three orphan boys, one with no name, and the headstrong Molly clash fates with the villainous pirate, Black Stache, and a dozen others aboard two sea-swept ships bound for the remote kingdom of Rundoon. Join them all in their swashbuckling race for the Queen’s treasure and join in one nameless orphan’s quest for a name, and a world, to call his own. Watch a small group of actors bring two sea-faring vessels—and the sea itself—to life on the intimate Willingham Theater stage.

The cast includes Zach Freeman, Carlie Taylor, Steele Howell, Sam Trivette, Josh Casteen, Dru Billings, Hunter Osborne, Caleb Gerber, Will Hemric, Lincoln Funderburk, Matthew Lowe, Jacob Kepley and Nancy Onsrud. Creative and support crew includes Joe Surieka, Jacob Reeves, Katelyn Gentry, Sarah Bennett, Hannah Wood, Lilly North, Maddie McKie and Emme McKie.

The production is directed by Jessie Grant. Tickets are $15. For more info visit www.yadkinarts.org or call 336-679-2941.
