Peter and the Starcatcher
By Rick Elice, from the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Directed by Lee Gunderheimer
With ingenious stagecraft and boundless creativity, Peter and the Starcatcher upends the Peter Pan story and brings the legend to life. Starcatcher apprentice Molly Aster and three orphans are hunted by cut-throat pirates and their mustachioed captain as she races to protect a trunk of magical "Starstuff." This wildly theatrical production will have you hooked the moment your imagination takes flight.
