Peter and the Starcatcher
“Everything ends – and so our story begins”
We know the destination—Neverland—but here is the story of how we got there. In this music-filled, Tony-winning prequel to Peter Pan, a brave young girl leads a ragtag group of orphans on a quest to save the world from a villainous pirate. Hilarious, physical, and imaginative Peter and the Starcatcher embraces the child in each of us with far-from-childish depth and beauty.
A young orphan 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.
Actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.
