Hook, holds Peter Pan, played by Olivia Waguespack, at bay while crew members watch in fear in 'Peter & Tink,' which runs next week at SLU's Vonnie Borden Theatre in Hammond.

Southeastern Theatre presents “Peter & Tink” by playwright and Southeastern Louisiana University alumna Chelsea Krause at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, April 21-24, in the Vonnie Borden Theatre in D. Vickers Hall on campus.

General admission tickets are $10; $5 for Southeastern faculty and staff, seniors and non-Southeastern students. SLU students are admitted free with ID.

A prequel to “Peter Pan,” the children’s classic tale by Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie, “Peter & Tink” was written by Krause, who is now working as an actor in New York. She wrote the play for a performance of the university’s theater honors society Alpha Psi Omega, which had formed a partnership with the city of Bogalusa to present several theatrical performances, including the premiere of “Peter & Tink.”

Director James Winter said the play shows how Peter makes his way to Neverland and meets Tinkerbell. The play also gives insight into the past of characters, such as Captain Hook, the Lost Boys and even the infamous crocodile. Complete with sword-fighting, mermaids, pirates, songs, dancing and puppetry, “Peter & Tink” presents a fun, exciting adventure for the whole family, Winter said.

“We are all working very hard to bring this campus and the surrounding communities a fairy tale play they will hopefully remember for a long time,” said Winter, associate professor of acting and directing.

The cast consists of a large group of Southeastern students and community members.For information, contact Southeastern Theatre at (985) 549-2115.
