What Is the Story of Peter and the Starcatcher
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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Peter and the Starcatcher Like?
Like the legend of Peter Pan himself, Peter and the Starcatcher inspires the audience to stretch the limits of their imagination with inventive use of props and lighting. Instead of an elaborate set, scattered about the stage are the sort of knickknacks one might find in a junkyard. With just a ladder, rope, three treasure chests, two model ships and other clever materials, a company of 12 actors embodies more than 100 unforgettable characters and transport theatergoers to the land of make believe. Although the play is not considered a musical, Molly, Boy, Black Stache and the rest of the colorful characters randomly burst into songs composed by Wayne Barker, creating a show that is whimsical and enchanting.

Is Peter and the Starcatcher for Kids?
Peter and the Starcatcher is perfect for kids ages 10 and up (no children under four will be admitted). While the play does include some pop culture references and sophisticated dialogue that might fly over the heads of very young children, the coming-of age-tale explores first loves, first kisses and the secret desire we all have to stay young forever.
