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 – Peter Pan. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, this play explores the depths of greed and despair and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.
This play – by Rick Elice – is based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, featuring music by Wayne Barker. “Peter and the Starcatcher” was originally produced on Broadway by Nancy Nagel Gibbs, Greg Schaffert, Eva Price, Tom Smedes and Disney Theatrical Productions.
“Peter and the Starcatcher” is presented through a special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI (www.MTIShows.com).
