Peter and the Starcatcher

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | Ephrata, false 17522

Peter and the Starcatcher is a magical story about imagination and growing up – and never growing up. Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson and adapted for the stage by Rick Elice with music by Wayne Barker, this high-flying adventure tells the backstories of Peter Pan, Captain Hook, and Neverland. In addition to these beloved characters, a motley crew of new characters will find themselves shipwrecked in your heart. Molly Aster is a Starcatcher-in-training on a special mission with her father for the Queen. Molly hopes to impress her father with her serious determination. But how can she stay serious when she is confronted by goofy orphans, clumsy pirates, and sing-songy mermaids!

Ramble through Tucquan Glen or Kelly's Run Glen

Kelly’s Run Pinnacle

Trail, Hiking, Bucket
website | map it | No direct road access (see LCC website), Martic Township, Pennsylvania, 17532

The remains of an old rocky road are visible where flat schistic rocks have been placed side by side in and beside the stream. The Conservancy’s “Kelly’s Run Pinnacle Preserve” now encompasses the Conservancy’s Kelly’s Run trails, the former PPL Pinnacle preserve and the former PPL Holtwood Nature Preserve.

Tucquan Glen

Trail, Hiking, Bucket
website | map it | River Road, Martic Township, Pennsylvania, 17532

A largely abandoned dirt road and well-worn trail meander through the heart of the ravine for nearly a mile. Occasionally the road and trail run together for short distances, but are generally apart. We suggest taking the trail down to the railroad and returning via the road. The round trip trail length is estimated at 2.4 miles.
