Has the world lost it’s magic? Peter and the Starcatcher, a prequel to the world of Peter Pan, believes in magic, creativity, and most of all, the imagination of young children who still have the ability to see the world as exciting, scary, and full of stardust.

 

Based on the 2004 novel Peter and the Starcatcher by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, adapted for the stage by Rick Elice.  Peter provides a backstory for the characters of Peter Pan, Mrs Darling, Tinker Bell and Hook, and serves as a prequel to J. M. Barrie’s  Peter and Wendy. After a premiere in at the La Jolla Playhouse,Peter and the Starcatcher transferred to Off-Broadway in 2011 and opened on Broadway on April 15, 2012.

 

“We are thrilled to be bringing this incredibly rich and creative story to the Elmhurst Community, states York Drama Director Rebecca Marianetti.  Story telling is at the heart of our existence." John Forsythe, York Drama Director, states. “Peter and the Starcatcher is all about creating magic. We are fortunate to experience magic every day.; we invite you to share in the magic and the power of storytelling with us. Bring your family to smile, giggle, and wonder“
