Peter and the Starcatcher

Peter and the Starcatcher

“Things are only worth what you’re willing to give up for them…”

When starcatcher-in-training Molly meets an orphan boy longing for a home, they embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Join us on a breathtaking quest to answer the question: how did a boy named Peter become the boy who never grew up? Peter and the Starcatcher, a grownup’s prequel to Peter Pan, takes a hilarious romp through the Neverland you never knew. In this Tony Award-winning play with music, a dozen talented actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters using ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination. This swashbuckling production will have you hooked from the moment you let your imagination take flight! Based on the 2006 novel of a similar name by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, adapted for the stage by Rick Elice.
