Peter and the Starcatcher

August 18 -September 3

A Play by Rick Elice

Music by Wayne Barker

Directed by John Kish

Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

Climb aboard for the origin story that you’ve never heard of the world’s most famous lost boy. The boy 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.
