Peter and the Starcatcher
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.
Based on the 2004 novel by humorist Dave Barry and suspense writer Ridley Pearson, Peter and the Starcatcher features ingenious stagecraft, music, and an ensemble of twelve actors portraying over 100 characters. Written by Rick Elice with music by Wayne Barker, Peter and the Starcatcher is a playful prequel to Peter Pan that explores the depths of greed and despair, as well as the bonds of friendship, duty and love.
