A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

Featuring a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.

Bea and Althea are retired performers making good on a promise to spend their twilight years at a home for Retired Artists where they use their wit and humor to adjust to senior life. They spend their days exchanging barbs and reliving their glory days as actors. It becomes apparent that unwelcome changes in body and mind are occurring – for one of them faster than the other – illustrated by spirited conversations with inanimate objects. Bea and Althea’s younger selves appear during flashback scenes, then slowly throughout the play the younger and older pairs meld to form a harmonious quartet.
