Peter and the Starcatcher

August 10-12, 2018

A Play (with music) by Rick Elice, Music by Wayne Barker. Based on the Novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love. A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure. There are over 100 unforgettable characters, played by an ensemble of actors.This play (with music) uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.

Performances are August 10-12. Tickets are $10.00-12.00 and can be purchased at the door or through Brown Paper Tickets. On-line sales end one hour prior to show times, and the box office opens one hour before show times. Tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3574033
