  3. Peter and the Starcatcher

This show is a fascinating, watery tale of how a nameless orphan boy becomes Peter Pan, how the dread pirate Black Stache becomes Captain Hook, and how Mollusk Island becomes Neverland.  No strings. No wires. Peter sails, swims, swashbuckles, and ultimately soars on pure imagination, inspired stagecraft, and fantastic theatricality.  Peter and the Starcatcher is a chance to allow your imagination to FLY!

And did we mention pirates?

Dale Button - is excited to bring this Peter Pan prequel to life. Playing the villain is always fun, but this show is taking "fun" to the next level! Many thanks to Kristi Scott for the leeway to do some outrageous things, to Sara Jelley for her trust in me vocally, Tina Kailiponi for her ability to make things clear in a succinct manner (and herd cats like the best of them), and an amazing cast and crew who made this all possible!

Elisha Cullins

Slank the Sailor, Part of Crocodile, Smee Understudy
Elisha Cullins - is so thrilled to be returning to the Iao Theater stage in this large ensemble show in what’s seemed like years! But this time, embodying the darkest, dankest, stinkiest, slankiest character he could find. Elisha was actually asked to leave the theater multiple times throughout the rehearsal process due to his foul mood, appearance, behavior, and hygiene. For people who know Elisha outside of the theater, it’ll be just like watching him in his normal day-to-day life. TTFN.
