THE STORY:
A young orphan and his mates are shipped from England to a far off-island. On the voyage, they meet the precocious Molly, a Starcatcher-in-Training, who tells them that a certain trunk on board carries a magical cargo that must not fall in to the wrong hands. When their ship is attacked by the fearsome pirate, Black Stache, a thrilling adventure ensues where unwilling comrades unite and unlikely heroes emerge. This Tony Award-winning play explores the depths of greed and despair as well as the bonds of friendship, duty and love. It’s a perfect adventure for the entire family!

REVIEWS:
"Clever and joyous entertainment.... A celebration of youth and of the power of theater to inspire children and adults alike." - Backstage

“Part high seas adventure, part love story, it's a show that's all about play and joy, that last shot of anarchy before tromping on into adulthood.” – The Vancouver Sun

“The story simultaneously being told and celebrated is as elaborate, simple, cozy and scary as the best bedtime stories are.” – New York Times

“I suppose you could say that “Peter” is a coming-of-age tale about how Boy comes into his extraordinariness. But it’s equally about our willingness, with the help of some highly skilled guides, to accept the extraordinary, to will ourselves into believing that what the actors tell us is happening is really happening.” – New York Times
