Peter and the Starcatcher

Showtimes Available Starting Friday, June 14 through Saturday, June 29

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.

Hosted by FAU‘s Department of Theater and Dance. If you are a student or faculty/staff, please login before claiming your tickets. This will allow you to access any ticketing discounts that you are entitled to.

Location: University Theatre, Boca Raton campus (Get Parking and Directions)
