The repertory theater class performed their musical, Peter and the Starcatcher,  Wednesday, Dec. 7 and Thursday, Dec. 8.  Unlike the regular fall musical, rep theater’s musical has a cast and crew exclusively made up of students from the class.

Sophomore Reese Miller, who played one of the leads, Molly Aster, explains the amount of time and effort that has gone into this production since the beginning of the school year. 

“We have been working on this show since August,” Miller said. “We have rehearsal every single blue day during class and then after school every day usually until around 8:00 p.m. when we get close to the show.” 

Miller explains the musical’s premise. 

“It’s the story of how Peter Pan becomes Peter Pan and how he and the other boys end up living on Neverland. My character, Molly, is Wendy’s mom so it also shows how her family first got involved with Peter Pan,” Miller said. 

Senior Finn Cambpell, who played Lord Aster, was very happy with the cast’s performance. 

“I think the show was very successful and went super well,” Campbell said. “I’m very satisfied with our performance.”  

Campbell enjoyed many parts of the show, including the scene where it was revealed to the audience that the character Black Stache, played by senior Carter Harvey, was the same character now known as Captain Hook. 

“My favorite part of the show was when Black Stache gets his hand cut off,” Campbell said. 

Senior Brayden Heath, who played Molly’s nanny, Mrs. Bumbrake, only had one wish for a way he thought the show could have gone better. 

“The audience could’ve been better,” Heath said. “Some of their reactions fell short.” 

Miller was initially skeptical about how the cast was going to perform, but couldn’t have been happier with their performances after it was over. 

“I was a bit worried that the show wasn’t going to come together, but everyone really pulled through,” Miller said. “Everyone took their characters seriously which definitely helped in the success of the show. I can’t pinpoint a specific part of the show that I think was the most successful because I think all of it went really well.”
