Wallace Theatre brings “Peter and the Starcatcher” to CBU

Riverside, Calif. (Feb. 15, 2017) – A theatrical story telling the origins of Peter Pan is coming to Wallace Theatre with “Peter and the Starcatcher.”

Frank Mihelich, assistant professor of theatre and the play’s director, described the show as a dramatic story of how a young orphan boy becomes Peter Pan. It sets the stage for most of the characters that will appear in “Peter Pan,” Mihelich said.

Mihelich said the script requires the play’s 12 actors to be on stage for a majority of the show.  

“The 12 actors in this piece rarely leave the stage and therefore they must build a true ensemble and team. There is a tremendous amount of imagination and playfulness required of the actors,” Mihelich said.    

Maddison Rickard, junior theater major, plays Molly, a “Starcatcher-in-training.”

“My character is practically myself when I was 13,” Rickard said. “She's precocious and a know-it-all, but deep down she always makes decisions because she believes them to be right. She's so fiercely loyal and she's just such a fun sassy character to portray. She's a little firecracker.”
