Based on the young adult novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Peter and the Starcatcher tells the story of how Peter Pan became the beloved boy who would never grow up.  

The play which was adapted for the stage by Rick Elice, follows Peter as he joins forces with Molly in order to keep the powerful and magical "starstuff" away from the pirates who would use it for evil.  Instead of elaborate scenery and countless props Peter and the Starcatcher relies on imagination and wit to tell the captivating adventures of Peter.  

Guests:
Roger Rees, Director, “Peter and the Starcatcher”

Rick Elice, playwright who penned this musical based on the novel “Peter and the Starcatchers” by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

Peter and the Starcatcher is playing at the Ahmanson Theatre until January 12. You can buy tickets here
