​2nd Star is excited to present the area premiere of this 
2012 Tony-winning play. Peter and the Starcatcher is a 
wildly imaginative adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley 
Pearson’s best-selling series, telling how a miserable 
orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up 
(a.k.a. Peter Pan). 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.
