Congratulations to the Luther boys basketball team for their 2021 WIAA Regional Championship! The #1 seeded Knights now go after the Sectional Championship and the chance to play for a state title! On Thursday, February 25, Luther will host Necedah at 7:00 pm. With a victory, the Knights will then host the winner of the Blair-Taylor/Iola-Scandinavia game at 7:00 pm on Saturday, February 27.

For those unable to attend, the game will be live-streamed on the NFHS NETWORK. WIAA tournament games will require a fee to view. Your best option is to purchase a one-month pass for $10.99.  This will give you access to any game that is covered through the NFHS Network.
 
For those with a ticket and able to attend the game(s), please remember:
  • Don’t come if feeling sick or have any Covid symptoms (do your pre-screening prior to coming!)
  • Bring your mask – it is required for entrance and must be worn throughout the event.

Synopsis
Peter and the Starcatcher provides a humorous and fantastical backstory for the beloved character of Peter Pan and his arch-nemesis Captain Hook. In this wickedly imaginative play, we meet a poor orphaned child on the high seas simply called Boy because, in the absence of a mother and a father, he was never given a name. His sad and lonely world is turned upside down when he meets Molly. The daughter of famous Starcatcher Lord Astor, our heroine is on a mission to save the world and protect a treasure trunk filled with magical star stuff from getting into the hands of evil and greedy pirate Black Stache. As they travel aboard the Neverland ship headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love, friendship and forge an unbreakable bond.
 
PETER AND THE STARCATCHER is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com.
