Peter and the Starcatcher

A Play by Rick Elice

Music by Wayne Barker

Book by Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson

Wheaton Drama

May 20-June 12, 2022

This Tony-winning play uses ingenious stagecraft and limitless imagination to bring to life the story of how a miserable orphan boy becomes the legendary Peter Pan. Three young boys, kidnapped and sent to sea, know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, but precocious young Molly knows what’s inside – and that it must never fall into the wrong hands. Pirates, jungles, unlikely heroes, and a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher is rousing family entertainment at its best.
