PETER AND THE STARCATCHER
JANUARY 18 – FEBRUARY 4, 2018

Hillbarn Theatre kicks off 2018 with the Tony Award-winning play 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.

REVIEWS

“Director Jeffrey Lo orchestrates the story’s telling in such a way that it often feels there is no script but that these kids are making up the story as they go, based on something they have heard others tell in the past.”Eddie Reynolds, Talkin’ Broadway // Click here to read more

“This production has the sparkle and dazzle needed for a top-notch Peter and the Starcatcher, so I urge you to head on over to Hillbarn and join the adventure before it’s too late!”Marc Gonzalez, The Road to 1,000 // Click here to read more

“….there’s Dan Demers as Smee. He has acute comic timing. One of his more humorous lines comes after he’s called a ruffian. He replies something like, ‘I’m not a ruffian. I’ve never been to Ruffia’.”Judy Richter , San Mateo Daily Journal // Click here to read more
