Faith, Trust, & a Little Bit of Pixie Dust: Heritage’s “Peter and the Starcatcher”

The HHS Theater Department preformed the one-act musical “Peter and the Starcatcher” for this year’s fall play. Their hard work produced this once and a lifetime show that the school was able to see.

Heritage High School has put on some amazing shows in the past, but none that has instilled a sense of childlike wonderment like “Peter and the Starcatcher.” This tale traverses the seven seas and dives into the origin story of one of fairytale’s most beloved characters, Peter Pan.With the help of Wendy Darling’s mother, Molly, Peter is introduced into the world we all know as Neverland. Bringing this whimsical One Act performance together was no easy task, but the cast and crew of Heritage’s theater department encourage a challenge. Sets went up and soon the stage became a daring pirate ship. Lines were rehearsed and eventually a story unfolded. It is a story of friendship, perseverance, and memories that will follow the members of Troupe 100069 for the rest of their lives. As usual, the show was performed and perfected until it was deemed worthy to compete in the annual Region One Act Competition. Nerves and excitement filled the tightly packed school bus as the cast and crew made their way to Cedartown. Once it was Heritage’s turn to perform, the show could not have gone any better. The whole experience provided the students with exposure to other forms of theater, as well as ignited a drive to make the upcoming Spring musical the best thing Heritage High School has ever put on.

Briley Simpson, Yearbook Editor
Briley Simpson is entering her fourth year as a staff member of the HHS General Journal. She enjoys reading all the articles that get published and loves coming up with new ideas of things to cover. As this is her senior year, she is excited to once again help with the yearbook "The Legacy." She and staff member Allie Boyd are Co-Editors of the book. Briley also occupies her time by participating in clubs such as the Musical Theatre Tech team, BETA, SGA, NHS, NEHS, and the Lady Generals Soccer Team.  When Briley is not thinking about school, she turns to her bookshelf: a place where she feels the most comfort. Reading is one of her most enthralling pastimes. While she dives into a new story, she also likes to listen to music. Taylor Alison Swift is, of course, her #1 artist on Spotify and has been for the past five years. All in all, Briley is both overcome with sadness and optimism as she enters her final year of High School. She hopes that the work she accomplishes in Journalism will in fact leave a legacy!
