Peter Pan prequel opens run at Tabor

The story of how an orphan named Peter became the legendary Peter Pan will be told on stage at Tabor College as the theater department performs “Peter and The Starcatcher,” a Peter Pan prequel, beginning tonight and running through Saturday in the Chapel Auditorium.

Based on the young adult novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, this creative comedy set to music tells the story of how a lonely orphan became the boy who can fly, with a makeshift family and an enchanted island to call home.

“The cast is having great fun with it,” theater director Laurel Koerner said. “There’s plenty of room for creativity and infusing this with our own sense of humor. One of its charms is the ensemble nature of the cast. It’s a team effort, with no small roles.”

Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. General admission is $12, and non-Tabor student tickets are $8. High school students will be admitted by showing their school identification.

Tickets for tonight’s performance are half price.

Tickets can be reserved or purchased by visiting, calling the Student Life office at (620) 947-3121, ext. 1033, or emailing Tickets can also be purchased at the door.
