Family Friendly Play at Shakespeare Festival

The 2013 season at the Utah Shakespeare Festival begins in about two weeks.  This season, the most talked-about play is the Peter and the Starcatcher.


Fresh off of Broadway and boasting 5 Tony Awards, this play is making it’s regional premiere at the Utah Shakespeare Festival this summer right before the national tour this fall.  That means that this will be your last chance to see Peter and the Starcather for quite some time.

Fortunately, the festival has extended the show through the fall season in order to accommodate the large audiences that will be flocking to Cedar City.

The play is being directed by Shakespeare Festival favorite, Brian Vaughn.  It tells the story of Peter Pan before Neverland.  Audiences will discover how Neverland came into being, how Captain Hook lost his hand, and who the Lost Boys really are.

The story is told by 12 talented actors who play over 100 memorable characters and musicians who provide the sound effects and the musical backdrop.  In line with a child’s perspective of the world, ordinary props are used in imaginative ways: a rope become an ocean wave, and a flashlight becomes a piece of magic.

If you are looking for a fun and memorable experience with your family this year, come see Peter and the
