Discover the story behind the legend of Peter Pan when Peter & The Starcatcher opens this weekend at The Rose Theater!
Peter & The Starcatcher serves as a prequel to the well-known tale of Peter Pan and explains how many of the elements of that story came to be. Find answers to these questions and more including How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up? Where did Tinkerbell come from? How did Captain Hook lose his hand? One of my favorite stories growing up, I am excited to see the creativity and imagination in telling the story behind the story!
The play tells the story of an orphan who is wrangled onto a ship loaded with some mysterious crates filled with starstuff. He meets a 13-year-old Starcatcher Apprentice named Molly who has been charged with protecting the starstuff. Adventures abound as they are pursued by a mustachioed pirate captain named Black Stache and his sidekick, Smee. Along the way, Molly learns what it means to grow up and the nameless orphan is christened Peter Pan.
Simulating the creativity of children through play, a dozen actors playing more than 100 characters will perform on a sparse, deconstructed stage (even the exposed brick of the back wall of The Rose stage will be visible) which is transformed into a world of fantasy and whimsy through the clever use of props.
