The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane  
People's Light and Theatre The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
 
"Once, there was a china rabbit who was loved by a girl..." So begins the tale of Edward Tulane -- an arrogant china rabbit -- and his search for home, family and belonging. Based on the award-winning book The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Newbery medalist Kate DiCamillo (Because of Winn-Dixie, The Tale of Despereaux), this moving adaptation follows Edward as he's snatched from the arms of the little girl who adores him and set adrift on a series of adventures. His easy existence becomes an epic, sometimes painful journey that touches the lives of everyone he meets -- from an old fisherman to a little boy protecting his sister. This new adaptation of the story promises puppetry, music and more than a touch of theatrical magic. Stuart Caden directs this magical production at People's Light in Malvern.
 
   
Peter and the Starcatcher  
The Eagle Theatre Peter and the Starcatcher
 
The five-time Tony-winning show that The New York Times called "the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades," Peter and the Starcatcher is the swashbuckling prequel to Peter Pan. Inventive stagecraft and an imaginative story come together to reveal the origins of "the boy who wouldn't grow up" in this madcap music-filled adventure. The play is an action-packed journey through Neverland that brings pirates, mermaids, orphans and secret agents of the Queen together on the high seas. Based on the bestselling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, and written by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), this production of Peter and the Starcatcher at Hammonton's Eagle Theatre weaves an enchanting coming-of-age tale that's bound to appeal to your entire crew.
