"Peter and The Starcatcher" is a hilarious evening of madcap fun! In this five time Tony Award winning play with music, a dozen actors play more than 100 characters using their talent, ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination. This swashbuckling grownup tale of how Peter Pan earned his flight credentials and how a mustachioed pirate became a Captain will have you hooked from the moment you let your imagination take flight.

Peter and The Starcatcher is a play based on the 2006 novel of a similar name by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. Adapted for the stage by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker, the play provides a backstory for the character Peter Pan, and serves as a prequel to J. M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy. It was nominated for nine Tony Awards, winning five, and ran for over two years on and off Broadway.
