Peter and the Starcatcher

February 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - February 25, 2018 @ 4:00 pm

Take an unforgettable journey through the Neverland you never knew this February 20-25th, as Whale Song Theatre brings “Peter and the Starcatcher” to life.

Embark on an adventure to a whimsical world filled with pirates, mermaids and magic. This five-time Tony Award winner tells the story of a Starcatcher’s apprentice and her mission to retrieve a trunk of precious ‘starstuff’ with the help of a young orphan boy named Peter—a boy who is destined to never grow up. This wildly theatrical and hilarious prequel to the beloved story of Peter Pan is sure to ‘hook’ audiences of all ages.

Thirteen actors play more than 100 characters, and through ingenious stagecraft, inventive storytelling and live music whisk audiences away to a place where growing up can be an awfully big adventure.

This show is in support of the IWK Foundation. $1 from every ticket is donated directly to the Foundation. On Fundraiser Friday (February 23) we donate $5 from every ticket sold to the hospital.

THIS SHOW IS FAMILY FRIENDLY BUT THERE IS QUITE A BIT OF CHEEKY ADULT HUMOUR. THE SHOW IS RATED PG. We recommend it for ages 6+. Please no children under age 4. Like all the best stories about growing up, this show is actually for adults.
