By Rick Elice
Music by Wayne Barker
Based on the novel by Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson

When starcatcher-in-training Molly meets an orphan boy longing for a home, they embark on the adventure of a lifetime to protect a precious cargo. In this Tony Award-winning, magical and hilarious play with music, a dozen brilliant actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters.  Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to finally reveal the origins of Peter Pan, Wendy, the Lost Boys, their piratical nemesis, Captain Hook – and a far-off place known as Neverland.

“…a boatload of fun, a new spin on a myth as timeless as its title character.” – The Seattle Times

Peter is not an effigy for our loss of innocence, but a message in a bottle revealing that your inner-child lives and breathes…For making me feel like a carefree kid again, I give ArtsWest’s “Peter and the Starcatcher” 5/5 stars. Treat yourself to this well-deserved evening of whimsy, enchantment, and mirth.” – Broadway World

“Theater will always be one of my favorite ways to spend time with my kids, discuss hard topics, challenge our thinking and above all remember the power of imagination. Peter and the Starcatcher offers all of these opportunities in spades.” – Seattle’s Child
