DIRECTOR’S NOTE

Hello, fellow adventurer, and thank you for climbing aboard the Never-
land!

First, a bit about Pan: Peter Pan was born in 1902 by the hand of Scottish
writer JM Barrie, in his book The Little White Bird. Barrie would go on to
write three books and a play (Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow
Up) about Peter, and Peter himself would go on to capture the imagina-
tions of generations of the world’s children (including two little girls in
our Iowa home almost 100 years later). Pan is the embodiment of child-
hood: he is joy, delight, escapism, occasional self ishness, courage, won-
der, innocence, anarchy--he faces the world believing that it will bend to
his whim. The story of Peter Pan and his f riends would go on to inspire
movies (perhaps most notably Disney’s 1953 animated feature), musicals,
books, psychological theory, and even food and household products.

Which brings me to our play.

Peter & the Starcatcher is the prequel to the Peter Pan story of your child-
hood. Based on Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s popular young adult se-
ries Peter & the Starcatchers (Disney Hyperion), the play tells the story
of how an orphan Boy with no name becomes a legend. You’ll note the
change f rom book to script: “Starcatchers” on the book cover becomes
“Starcatcher” on your playbill. Pearson discusses this in several interviews
as being a small but signif icant change. In the books, the Starcatchers
are an elite force of humans charged with protecting a magical element
called “starstuff ” that turns beings into what they truly want to be. In the
play, the titular “Starcatcher” is Molly Aster, an aspiring member of the
force, but more importantly, the brave and precocious young woman who
teaches Peter what being a true leader looks like. This is the story, really,
of Peter and Molly.

Peter & the Starcatcher is written in the British Pantomime, or Panto,


style. Rooted in some elements of the Italian commedia del’ arte, Panto
is generally designed for the retelling of traditional fairy tales or folklore,
and includes physical or slapstick comedy, satire, actors dressed as ani-
mals, a lot of double entendre (if you know what I mean), stock characters
(the villain, the hero, the clown, etc.) and a bunch of modern references
thrown in for good measure. There is often a chorus in a Panto, and you’ll
see that our actors serve that purpose--they are watching over scenes,
sometimes commenting on and even driving the action. Panto also em-
braces a strong “cross-dressing” tradition, and this looms large in cast-
ing the show. The play is written for 11 men and one woman; the woman
plays “Molly”, and the men play everyone else--women, mermaids, Italian
mollusk islanders, everyone. Often directors choose to cast both men and
women in the roles, and to ignore that Panto element of the script. I faced
some serious decisions here, then. First, there’s this: as a celebrator of the
complex and wondrous spectrum of nonbinary gender expression, I have
learned that making a joke of a man in a dress is, among other things,
both small and boring. Since our play is neither of those things, I’m not
interested in f inding the funny there. I don’t want giggling at mer-men
in shell bras, or our Mrs Bumbrake in her dress. In conversation with our
costume designer Samantha, though, we discovered that we could solve
those issues by putting the men in minimal pieces that imply their char-
acters but require a bit of imagination--you’ll have to let me know if you
think it worked.

So then I faced the issue of whether or not it’s even a good or interesting
thing to create this play with 12 actors and only one woman. I decided,
ultimately, that it is. Here’s why:

In the Prologue, we learn that our story starts on a “grey and misty dawn”
in 1885 on the docks at Portsmouth. The history buffs among us will recog-
nize immediately, then, that we are in Victorian England. Queen Victoria
reigned for decades, and was a much beloved monarch who presided over
the then Great Britain in a time of prosperity and peace. It was also a time
of severe restrictions and limitations for women. British society was com-
mitted to the idea that a woman’s only place was in the home, with her
children (not really an original stance for any time or place). Women were
not considered leaders in any way: a notion I f ind deeply ironic, since a
woman helmed the entire Empire. So I decided that the image of a young
woman, our Molly, facing adventure and danger in a world made only of
men, is compelling enough that it’s worthy of that casting decision. Molly
is a born leader, and her ideas about leadership imply a deep understand-
ing of how human beings work. She is unapologetic and smart, and she
knows how to motivate people toward an almost impossible goal. She also
faces non-stop skepticism about her ability to lead, because others feel
that they themselves more closely resemble traditional leaders. Listen for
the moment in the play when she turns to one of the orphans and says,
“Ever notice, Ted--the more you claim leadership the more it eludes you?”

The play you’re about to watch is packed with everything we at DalekoArts


love in a play: it has action, love, mystery, adventure, imagination, joy, heart,
sincerity, and a lot of laughs. It tackles some issues, it embraces life, and
it has more than one hero’s journey. We love these characters, each and
every one of them, and we hope you’ll feel the same when our adventure
today is over. On behalf of Molly, Peter, the orphans, Stache, Smee, Tink,
and the whole gang...thank you for having faith. We’re honored to count
you among our band of Starcatchers.

With love and a little pixie dust,

OUR MISSION
DalekoArts (DELL-uh-koh), an ensemble theatre
company, works with professional artists to pursue
impactful, live performance in our community of
New Prague, Minnesota and the surrounding region.

OUR VISION
Our purpose is to decentralize professional theatre in
Minnesota by increasing engagement and opportu-
nity in New Prague and the surrounding area. It is our
dream that New Prague will be a known destination
for quality performing arts and arts education.

OUR STORY
DalekoArts was founded in 2012 by theatre artists
Ben Thietje and Amanda White as a way to help de-
centralize professional theatre in Minnesota.

New Prague was chosen as the company’s home due


to the community’s extraordinary interest in theatre,
the regional growth and development it has experi-
enced in the last decade, its relative proximity to the
Twin Cities, and its close ties to the founders.

“Daleko” — a Czech word meaning “far away” — re-


flects New Prague’s strong bohemian roots, its spa-
tial relationship to the cultural hub that is the Twin
Cities, and the ensemble’s desire to step back and
examine the world f rom a new point of view.

DalekoArts is a member of the Theatre


Communications Group (TCG), the national
organization for the American theatre.

DalekoArts is a proud member of the Minnesota


Theater Alliance.
