PETER AND THE STARCATCHER Joins ZACH Theatre's 2014-15 Season
ZACH Theatre has announced the addition of the Broadway hit and five-time Tony Award-winning play Peter and The Starcatcher to its 2014-2015 Season.
The story of Peter Pan is cherished by young and old alike, making this charming and hilarious prequel starring Martin Burke a sure crowd-pleaser. Based on the best-selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, PETER AND THE STARCATCHER is written by Tony Award nominee Rick Elice (Jersey Boys) and originaly directed by Tony Award winner Roger Rees (Nicholas Nickleby) and Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Rocky, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson).
In this hilarious evening of madcap fun, a dozen brilliant actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters from James M. Barrie's Peter Pan, using their enormous talent, ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination.
With the late-breaking opportunity to produce this award-winning production in ZACH's 2014-15 season, Peter and the StarCatcher replaces previously announced One Man, Two Guvnors which will be produced at a later date.
