CLARKSVILLE — Our Lady of Providence's fall show “Peter and the Starcatcher” pairs drama with comedy, a play with a musical and theater with faith.

“One of the quotes [from the show] is ‘to have faith is to have wings’ and I think it has a really strong message about hope and faith,” director Lynne Miller said.

The play, which has some singing but less than a traditional musical, portrays how a young orphan from England became the immortal and airborne Peter. Greed, despair, friendship, duty and love are also “playfully explored” according to a press release.

“I love theater… it’s just going back and doing all things that I love to do. I mean, I guess there’s some things we do because we have to do to them and some things we do because we love to them. Fall show is something I love to do. I love to rehearse. I love to work on shows. It’s really fun,” Miller said.

Twenty students at Providence have worked on the show since the end of July, according to Miller.

“We certainly have a core group of kids who are committed to our theater program. This is what they’re passionate about,” she said.

Show times are Sept. 15, 16, 23 and 24 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 17 at 2 p.m. in the Ray Day Little Theatre at Providence. Tickets are $10 each and be purchased in advance at, by calling 812-945-2538, ext. 314 or at the box office prior to the show.
