TLT announces performance dates, cast for “Peter and the Starcatcher”

Published 3:37 pm Thursday, November 3, 2016


With ingenious stagecraft and boundless creativity, “Peter and the Starcatcher” is a grown-up’s prequel to the Peter Pan story. Starcatcher apprentice Molly Aster and three orphans are hunted by cutthroat pirates and their mustachioed captain as she races to protect a trunk of magical “starstuff.”

This wildly theatrical production, based on the New York Times bestselling novel by Ridley Pearson and Dave Barry, won five 2012 Tony Awards and was named one of New York Times’, New York Magazine’s and the New Yorker’s Top 10 Shows of the Year.

Directed by Chris Tinkler and with musical direction by Pam McNeil, Tryon Little Theater boasts a company of a dozen actors that play more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become the boy who never grew up? Outrageously funny, “Peter and the Starcatcher” is a “non-musical with music” which tells the Neverland story you never knew.

Although billed as a “grown-up’s prequel,” “Peter and the Starcatcher” delivers fun for the entire family with its “Shrek-like” attitude. Big voices, high seas high-jinx and a hilarious dance number make this play a must-see.

The play will take place at TLT’s black box theater on Nov. 10-13 and 17-20 (Thursday – Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.). A special cocktail party will take place before opening night. For tickets and additional information visit
