“To have faith is to have wings”

Campers and staff gathered at Airy’s Cohen Theater tonight to watch the play “Peter and the Star Catcher.” For those who may not know, a young orphan and his pals are shipped off from England to a distant island ruled by an evil king. They are unaware of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is “starstuff,” a substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the adventure begins.

SPOILER ALERT: The orphan boy comes into the name “Peter Pan,” and Black Stache loses a hand in an action-packed scene. This foreshadows an all-time great villain, Captain Hook. Oh, and people fly! And we are introduced to Tinkerbell!

FROM THIS OBSERVER: The character Smee – right hand man to Black Stache – stole the show. He was funny!

Congrats to the cast and crew on a great show. To cap off the evening, we all gathered in the dining hall for Make Your Own Sundaes and a dance party with DJ Malps.

Six days left …
