“Peter and the Starcatcher” is a tale about how Peter Pan actually became Peter Pan. This swashbuckling show is filled with pirates and mermaids and treasure chests full of ‘starstuff’. It’s a fast paced and hilarious take on the life of Peter and the Lost Boys and their pirate nemesis, Black Stache, as they protect precious cargo on the Neverland ship. The show runs November 1-6, with performances at 7:30 p.m., with the exception of the Sunday 2:30 p.m. matinee.
