Synopsis

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 orphans (including a homeless, nameless lad known as ‘Boy’) on a secret mission - a perilous voyage across seas infested by treacherous pirates, fearsome savages, and dubious mermaids, to a faraway island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. 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, incorporating elements of South East Asian art forms. Full of wit and wonder, colorful characters, and fabulous musical numbers, this is an exhilarating, magical adventure for all the family, and a powerful statement on empowering every child with self-belief and hope.
