"EPAC's 'Peter and the Starcatcher' traces the origins of Peter Pan"

Jane Holahan, Lancaster Online

A Play By Rick Elice
Based on the Novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Music By Wayne Barker
Tony Award Nominated for Best Play 2012
Recommended for all Audiences

Peter and the Starcatcher is a magical story about imagination and growing up – and never growing up. Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson and adapted for the stage by Rick Elice with music by Wayne Barker, this high-flying adventure tells the backstories of Peter Pan, Captain Hook and Neverland. In addition to these beloved characters, a motley crew of new characters will find themselves shipwrecked in your heart. Molly Aster is a Starcatcher-in-training. Her father, Lord Leonard Aster, is on a special Starcatcher mission for Queen Victoria in search of Starstuff. Molly hopes to impress her father with her serious determination. But how can she stay serious when she is confronted by goofy orphans, clumsy pirates, and sing-songy mermaids!
