Peter and the Starcatcher

Peter and the Starcatcher does for J.M. Barrie's classic what Wicked does for The Wizard of Oz.

A high-octane, bust-out comedy…the actors and designers don’t miss a comedic trick. Gags. Malapropisms. Double-entendres. Pace.

Before Peter was Pan, he was just a boy. But when this orphan climbs aboard the good ship Neverland, he whisks us away on an exhilarating adventure to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up?

In this innovative and imaginative play based on the best-selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, a company of wildly talented actors play more than a hundred unforgettable characters in the epic origin story of popular culture’s most enduring and beloved hero.

No strings. No wires. Peter sails, swims, swashbuckles, and ultimately soars on pure imagination, inspired stagecraft, and fearless theatricality.

And did we mention pirates?
