Peter and the Starcatcher
Winner of five Tony Awards, Peter and the Starcatcher is a hilarious, hair-raising, and heartwarming prequel to the Peter Pan legend, and a celebration of the innocence, imagination and resilience of the Child.
Singapore, 1885: we join Molly (a precocious young Starcatcher-in-training) and three orphan boys on a secret mission – a perilous voyage across seas infested by treacherous pirates, fearsome savages, and dubious mermaids, to a faraway island ruled by an evil king. All for the sake of the mystical, mythical “starstuff”, a celestial substance so powerful, it must never fall into the wrong hands. With the dastardly Black Stache in hot pursuit, the vengeful Fighting Prawn and Hawking Clam lurking in the deep, and the mysterious Mr Grin hungry for his next meal, will the children survive the dangers, find the elusive Neverland and live happily ever after?
Featuring a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Pangdemonium’s production of Peter and the Starcatcher will be specially adapted to an Asian setting, and is also the company’s very first family show! Full of wit and wonder, colorful characters, and fabulous musical numbers, this is an exhilarating, magical adventure for everyone from 7 to 107, and a timely statement on empowering every child with self-belief, courage and hope.
“Soars deliriously high and gloriously far.”
“An absurdly funny fantastical journey!”
“Charming and inventive…this show is the gold standard.”
“Miraculous. Spectacle, wit and joy spill out of this show like treasure out of a magic pocket…a classic.”
“Enthralling! Floats right through the ceiling and never stops flying.”
A Play by Rick Alice; Music by Wayne Barker; Based on the novel by Dave Barry & Ridley Pearson
