Dordt Theatre to Perform Fall Musical

The Dordt Theatre Department is putting on fall musical "Peter and the Starcatcher"

The Theatre Arts Department at Dordt University will present “Peter and the Starcatcher” for this year’s fall mainstage musical. Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, the play is a humorous take on Peter Pan’s origin story.

“It's a fresh take, with pop culture references and opportunities for the students to influence the action and bring their own humor to it. It's a very relatable story with many elements that will be familiar, told in a creative and exciting way,” says Laurel Koerner, associate professor of theatre arts and scenic designer for the musical.

Director Teresa Ter Haar worked with a cast of 13 students to create this humorous and entertaining production.

Performances will take place October 14, 16, 21, 22, and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and October 16 at 2:00 p.m. All performances will be held at the Te Paske Theatre, located in the Sioux Center Community School District north of campus.
