Peter and the Starcatcher, a play by Rick Elice, based on the children’s book of a similar name by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, is an imaginative and humorous telling of the story of the Boy who wouldn’t grow up and his friendship with Molly, The Starcatcher.

The play’s creative use of sparse props and enchanting stage sets invite you to use your imagination as you are taken on a journey in this prequel of how the Boy became Peter Pan. Picture a simple rope turning into a room and then waves. Picture actors becoming doors on the ship, The Neverland, and plants in a jungle. This cast of 12 actors, plays dozens of characters and objects. You may be reminded of your own imaginary, magical world when you were a child.

While the humor and dialogue are intended more for adults, the whimsical nature of this play will resonate with children ages 10 and older as well.
