GhostLit Repertory Theatre Company
Based on the book "Peter and the Starcatchers" by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, this play, with a book by Rick Elice and music by Wayne Barker, upends the century old story of how a miserable orphan boy becomes Peter Pan. The show follows the young orphan boy and his mates as they 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.
Peter and the Starcatcher will be directed by Caitlin Teeley and Harrison Lang, with Choreography by Natalie Sala and Music Direction by Jackson Teeley
