Peter and the Starcatcher is an origin story of sorts about Peter Pan.

A press release from The Washington Pavilion describes the show as, "The Tony Award®-Winning production upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). This wildly theatrical adaptation of the best-selling novels is brought to life by 16 of the most talented young performers in the area playing more than 100 unforgettable characters. Don’t miss this performance that the entire family is guaranteed to love."

The Dakota Academy of the Performing Arts makes up the cast for this show and many more to come.

The Series features six productions in total that are put on by local youth. The shows serve as an introduction to the theatre for young audiences.

Previously this season, DAPA premiered We Are Monsters in October.

Shows on the horizon include:

White Christmas- December 16 through 19, 2021

The Journey of the Noble Gnarble- February 11 and 12. 2022
