Actors Point Theatre Company Presents ‘Peter and the Starcatcher’

Actors Point Theatre Company proudly presents the Tony awardwinning show Peter and the Starcatcher, September 17 – 19. Telling the story of how Peter becomes “Pan”, Sumner County’s Professional Theater company brings this show to life in the Sanders Ferry Park pavilion right on the lake. Bring the family, chairs, blankets, and your favorite food and enjoy an evening of theater under the stars.

Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Peter and the Starcatcher explores how a young orphan ultimately became Peter Pan. The story is about how a miserable orphan comes to be "The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up" (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, Peter and the Starcatcher takes the audience on a thrilling journey, containing marauding pirates and jungle tyrants, unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes.

The twelve-person ensemble cast is led in the title role by Sam Kell, a local professional actor who is making his Actors Point debut. He is joined by Caitlyn Porayko in the role of Molly, the girl who helps him fly (and eventually becomes the mother of Wendy), and Antonio Nappo, another Nashville favorite, in the role of Black Stache, the pirate who becomes Captain Hook.

Additional cast members include some familiar faces to Actors Point Theatre Company, including Patrick Kramer, Lauren Proctor, Cooper Atkins, Lily Jackson and Andrew Layman. The cast is rounded out by actors well known around the Nashville theater scene; David Arnold as Lord Aster, Nick Spencer as Smee, Joshua Diolosa and Drake Cunningham as the Mollusk warriors Fighting Prawn and Hawking Clam. The show is directed and choreographed by Kate Adams Kramer, with musical direction by Gail Davis, and produced by Greg Wilson, Artistic Director.
