Duluth Playhouse presents Peter and the Starcatcher, a hilarious and wildly theatrical prequel to Peter Pan. Running May 24 - June 2 at the NorShor Theatre, Rick Elice’s Tony Award-winning play, based on the best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, upends the century-old story of the boy who wouldn’t grow up. 

The whimsical, music-filled play begins with a band of orphan boys, one of whom was never given a name, being shipped off to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. On board the ship, the unnamed boy’s sad world is turned upside down when he befriends Molly, a quick-witted Starcatcher-in-training who possesses a mysterious trunk containing "starstuff.” As they work together to protect the magical substance from falling into the wrong hands, they encounter a colorful array of characters – from marauding pirates to jungle tyrants to singing mermaids. At its heart, Peter and the Starcatcher is a thrilling journey through the world of make-believe, where unlikely heroes emerge from the most unexpected places. 

Featuring a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to entertain audiences of all ages.
