ABOUT THE SHOW

 

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.

 

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.

 

Featuring a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher uses the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.

 

“This is a celebration of youth and of the power of theater to inspire children and adults alike.”

DIRECTOR'S NOTES

FROM THE DIRECTOR
 

Welcome to the story of Buddy the Elf! Many of you are probably familiar with Buddy’s story from the 2003 film, starring Will Ferrel, which has become a holiday classic. If you are experiencing this story for the first time, then this musical adaptation adds even more sparkle and holiday spirit into Buddy’s journey from being a North Pole elf, to joining his family, and finding happiness!

 

However you choose to celebrate the holidays at this time of year, the story of Buddy’s journey, and his message of kindness, love, and good cheer can speak to everyone. Buddy is the eternal child that lives in all of us and there is no better time of year to be reminded that we all need to be a bit more like Buddy – hug the people you care about, sing loudly to express your cheer, and delight in the simple joys that are all around you.

 

From all of us in the Elf company, we wish you the very best for this Festive Season!

 

Make every day SparkleJollyTwinkleJingley!!
