Based on the Novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson

Before Wendy... before he was Captain Hook... before a boy was given the name Peter Pan...and before there was a Neverland, there was a Starcatcher Apprentice named Molly, a pirate named Black Stache, and a nameless orphan...and they are about to be thrown together in a perilous (and wildly hilarious) adventure on the high seas. But, of course none of this actually exists, unless you are prepared to use your imagination.

Westford Academy Theater Arts is proud to present the highly inventive Peter and the Starcatcher - a play by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys - Addams Family) based on the 2004 novel by humorist Dave Barry and suspense writer Ridley Pearson and directed by Luke Jorgensen.

In Disney's prequel to Peter Pan an apprentice starcatcher - 13 year-old Molly Aster - and three orphan boys take to the high seas with a trunk full of magic starstuff while pursued by a boat-load of pirates. Along the way Molly learns what it means to grow-up while a nameless orphan and his friends take up residence on an island where dreams are born and time is never planned - the island where that nameless orphan is becomes Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up.

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.

A dozen actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters, employing inspired stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination.

Peter and the Starcatcher is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
