Introducing The Cast Of PETER AND THE STARCATCHER At Playhouse On Park

Introducing The Cast Of PETER AND THE STARCATCHER At Playhouse On ParkNow celebrating it's 10th Anniversary Season, Playhouse on Park opens its Mainstage Series with the wildly imaginative Peter and the Starcatcher, by Rick Elice and music by Wayne Barker.

Peter and the Starcatcher is ideal for the Playhouse stage - its cast of 12 plays over 100 characters, using ingenious stagecraft to retell the story of The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up. This thrilling prequel to Peter Pan is appropriate for all ages and promises to be fun for the entire family! 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 through razor sharp wit, music, and a little bit of starstuff.
