PETER AND THE STARCATCHER is a play based on the 2004 novel 'Peter and the Starcatchers' by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, adapted for the stage by Rick Elice. The play provides a backstory for the characters of Peter Pan, Mrs Darling, Tinker Bell and Hook, and serves as a prequel to J. M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy. After a premiere in California at the La Jolla Playhouse, the play transferred to Off-Broadway in 2011 and opened on Broadway on April 15, 2012. The show ended its Broadway run on January 20, 2013, and reopened Off-Broadway once again at New World Stages in March 2013, ending in January 2014.
Parents, please note: Although all actors will be considered, this production is best suited to a small, more mature cast. We are not limiting the ages beyond K-12, but more mature actors--of any age--will be given preference. We highly encourage any interested child to audition, regardless--every audition is an opportunity to learn and grow!
