Peter and The Starcatcher

Cobb Great Hall

“Absurdly Funny”
—Entertainment Weekly

Before Peter was Pan, he was just a boy. But when this orphan climbs aboard the good ship Neverland, he whisks us away on an exhilarating adventure to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up?

“Fantastical and Enchanting.”
—Philadelphia Inquirer


In this innovative and imaginative musical play based on the best-selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, a company of wildly talented actors play more than a hundred unforgettable characters in the epic origin story of popular culture’s most enduring and beloved hero.

No strings. No wires. Peter sails, swims, swashbuckles and ultimately soars on pure imagination, inspired stagecraft and fearless theatricality.

And did we mention pirates?


Run Time: 2 hours and 15 minutes including one intermission. Recommended for families, especially for children 10 years and up.
