“PETER AND THE STARCATCHER is a play about finding your home,” says Aluma. “Where is home? And how do we find it? What does that quest look like? These are ever-pressing questions, especially in this country right now. This wildly entertaining adventure story is filled with song, dance, and clowning galore. I’m excited to bring the magic and awe of this world to the stage while dazzling the ‘kid at heart’ in all of us.”
