Based on The New York Times best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, the imaginative play tells the tale of an orphan who heads to a faraway land, where he finds love, friendship, and ultimately himself.

The company of 12 actors plays more than 100 unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up?

The touring production has drawn enthusiastic responses from critics: “Exuberantly directed by Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, this ingenious fairy tale flies on its giddy sense of invention as a cast of 12 employs nothing more than a few ladders, a bit of rope, a stuffed cat and a kitchen timer to cast a magic spell on the audience,” said Karen D’Souza of the San Jose Mercury News.

“Peter and the Starcatcher” is “a shimmering treasure…nautical and naughty… wonderfully literary and ridiculously imaginative,” said Lisa Kennedy from The Denver Post and Lauren Smart from Arts + Culture Texas magazine dubbed it “…an inventive delight of a show, with jokes for the adults and an imaginative story for the kids.”
