The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (FAC) announces the regional premiere of Peter & the Starcatcher ? the most magical evening of madcap fun this Spring. This play by Rick Elice with music by Wayne Barker is based on the 2004 novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson and is the winner of five Tony Awards®. The FAC production hits the mainstage March 31?April 24.

This swashbuckling prequel to Peter Pan will have you hooked from the moment you let your imagination take flight. Hailed by The New York Times as "the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades," this comedy takes a hilarious romp through the Neverland you never knew. A company of a dozen actors play more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century?old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up?

Peter and the Starcatcher is directed by Joye Levy (director of previous FAC productions: Play It Again Sam, A Christmas Story, and In The Next Room) and stars Levi Penley, Jordan Leigh, Rebecca Myers, Andrew Wilkes, Sammy Gleason, David Hastings, Omid Dastan Harrison, Michael Lee, Kevin Pierce, Jonathan Andujar, Adam Blancas, and Karl Brevik.
