Peter and the Starcatcher

The Neverland you never knew.
A Play by Rick Elice, Music by Wayne Barker
based on the book by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Directed by Teresa K. Pond

Molly Aster and her father, by order of Queen Victoria, are headed to dump a trunk of dangerous star-stuff into Mount Jalapeño, when they are separated by a pirate attack. In this irreverent, whimsical comedy with music filled with wacky theatricality, Molly encounters some lost boys who help her battle a pirate captain and his sidekick Smee. Molly searches for her father and the orphans take up residence on an island where dreams are born and time is whatever you wish it to be. Discover how a captain gets his hook and a crocodile gets his tick-tock.

Perseverance at the PAC

Perseverance has been a resident company at the PAC since 2011, joining a group of Alaskan arts organizations including the Anchorage Opera, Anchorage Symphony, Anchorage Concert Association, Alaska Dance Theatre and more committed to bringing great performances to our audiences in this beautiful building. Great performances and great venues go hand in hand, and Perseverance is proud to be part of the work of the PAC and its resident companies to raise the quality of life in Alaska, and contribute vitality to the downtown core of Alaska’s largest city.

About the Sydney Laurence Theatre

The asymmetrical seating arrangement in the Laurence Theatre, with open boxes on the sides, creates a strong dramatic effect. The twilight palette of blues, grays and mauves is reinforced in the seating upholstery, designed by Alaskan resident Hugh McPeck, entitled Forest Floor.

Sydney Laurence (1865-1940) was the foremost painter of Alaskan landscapes. He came to Alaska in 1904 in search of gold and found painting to be more productive. His large canvas of Denali is part of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Collection of Fine Arts. The Anchorage Museum of History and Art has an entire gallery dedicated to his work.

The Sydney Laurence Theatre seats approximately 300 people across two levels.
