Footlighters Inc. will open Peter and the Starcatcher on Thursday, November 29th, 2018. Directed by Chad Brinkman, this production will take place at The Stained Glass Theatre, 802 York Street in Newport, Kentucky. Tony- winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan becomes the legendary Peter Pan. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants, to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair….and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love. This wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels features over a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters. Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring this timeless story to life.
This production is Chad Brinkman’s directorial debut at Footlighters, but he is no stranger to theater. Chad’s career spans more than a hundred productions, including work in theatre, film, dance, and music in New York City and internationally. Chad’s representative credits includes work at New York’s Public Theater, La MaMa, E.T.C., Playwrights Horizons, and the Atlantic Theater Company. Chad has also served as a guest-teaching artist for the Goldberg Department of Dramatic Writing at New York University.

The group was established in 1963 by a small group of community theater volunteers who wanted to bring theater opportunities to the west side of Cincinnati. In 1987, the group bought the Salem United Methodist Church in Newport and transformed it into The Stained Glass Theatre. The theater is on the National Register of Historic Places and is designated a Kentucky landmark.
