    A unique theatrical experience, this play attempts to convince the audience that they are watching the performance breakdown before their very eyes.  The “playwright” Lisa explains that she has written a “multi-character exploration of issues of health and illness both in the individual and in a community.”  She has hired actors to play the other characters and has even brought her mother, Ann, to observe and participate.  But from the very beginning, Ann second guesses Lisa’s telling of the story, and as the evening progresses, the other actors join in the criticism.  Ultimately Lisa is forced to confront her own biases and acknowledge the heartbreaking challenge of true empathy, even toward those we love the most.

With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to marry off his daughters and instill in them a sense of tradition in the face of growing anti-Semitism in Czarist Russia.

    4th St Theatre, Chesterton, IN 46304, USA

    Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. 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.

    A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

    Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. 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.

    A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

    Christmas Favorite to Return
    4th Street Theater in Chesterton proudly presents Grant Fitch in the Charles Dickens holiday classic “A Christmas Carol.” This family favorite kicks of the holiday season on Saturday, November 24th at 7pm.
    Grant Fitch, an award winning local actor and professional storyteller will perform his one-man version of the Dickens tale for one performance only on the 4th Street stage. Now in his 21st year of performing this timeless story, Fitch brings all the characters vividly to life. Meet the loveable Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim, as well as the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge along with Marley’s Ghost and the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Even if you’re familiar with the many screen versions, Fitch includes scenes from the original novella rarely depicted on film.
    Grant first developed his text for “A Christmas Carol” in 1997, and it has grown in performance with each passing year. It was the first story of many; he is today a professional storyteller, bringing picture books and silly stories to school kids, and giving dramatic readings of the works of authors from Mark Twain to Edgar Allan Poe. He has been acting on area stages nearly as long as he’s been storytelling. He has starred in, among others, “The Foreigner.” “My Fair Lady,” “Same Time, Next Year,” “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” and “The Drowsy Chaperone.”
    Tickets for this one night only performance on Saturday, November 24th are available through Brown Paper Tickets as well as at the door. Tickets are $10 adult and $5 of children/students. 4th Street Theater is located at 125 N. Fourth Street in Chesterton, Indiana. Bring the family and begin your holiday season with this timeless classic.
