"Crack! The sound of splintering wood soaking canvas whipped by wind!" echos across the theater, words that can paint a picture so vivid that the elaborate sets and costumes are almost not even needed. This is one of the lines from Peter and The Starcatcher, a prequel to the well known show Peter Pan.

Direct from its Broadway run, the show was given to a select few high schools in the country to pilot and Dos Pueblos High School has been chosen by Disney Theatrical to try to pull off this challenging but entertaining show.

The story of Peter and the Starcatcher follows a group of orphans on their journey on a mysterious and interesting ship filled with gamblers, pigs and crew members with gas problems. 

Aboard the same ship is apprentice starcatcher Molly Aster, whose duty is to protect a trunk filled with magical starstuff from the evil hands of the Shakespearean pirate Black Stache, who is known for his celebrated mustache and cruelty.

Characters such as Fighting Prawn and Alf will either leave you in a laughing fit, on the edge of your seat or even off it.

Filled with modern jokes but set in old victorian England Peter and the Starcatcher’s unique perspective will captivate audiences of all ages.

Director Clark Sayre brings a new spin to the show by adding elements that have never been seen before for this show, such as playing instruments onstage as they become different elements of the set.

The story will enchant audiences of all ages and will happen Nov. 13 and 14 at 7 p.m. and 14 and 15 at 2 p.m. 

Tickets can be purchased online at or at the booth on the Dos Pueblos campus between 3–5 p.m. weekdays.

You can also get 10 percent off of your tickets by posting a picture of yourself on Instagram, Facebook or other social media channel with a creative or realistic mustache with the hashtag #starcatchstash.  

Hope to see you there!

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
