Neverland backstory to be nationally premiered in Kamloops
Kamloops This Week - November 21, 2014
When Daryl Cloran decided he wanted to bring Peter and the Starcatcher to Sagebrush Theatre for the Christmas season, he was faced with some Peter Pan-worthy challenges — like finding the people to approach to see if he could get the rights. Then, after a lot of Internet searching to locate them, convincing them Kamloops was the absolute most perfect place to give the award-winning family play its Canadian premiere.... >More
Set a mini ‘dollhouse’
Follows the Kamloops This Week story above
Cory Sincennes [Set and Costume Designer] had his own vision as he planned the set for Peter and the Starcatcher. After researching the etchings and pictures that illustrated the original J.M.

Effortless Flights of Fancy
By Ben Bradley, New York Times
"...“Peter” is all about storytelling as a lively (and live) art, and the energized complicity that’s forged between the teller and the listener.
"...The story simultaneously being told and celebrated is as elaborate, simple, cozy and scary as the best bedtime stories are. Its elements include an ocean voyage, a shipwreck, a cargo of something called stardust, a blissful Edwardian chorus line of singing mermaids and three orphans (sold to a dastardly seaman for sinister purposes) who have never seen the light of day before. The unhappiest of these lads doesn’t even have a name to call his own.
"...I suppose you could say that “Peter” is a coming-of-age tale about how Boy comes into his extraordinariness. But it’s equally about our willingness, with the help of some highly skilled guides, to accept the extraordinary, to will ourselves into believing that what the actors tell us is happening is really happening."
A Little Night Music
The New York Times
"...a larky séance with Barrie’s mythic characters: part pantomime, part story theatre, and all delight.
"...the audience and the characters are carried, with a snap of the fingers and a change of the lights, into the eternal present of make-believe."
