THEATRE AT SOUTHAMPTON PRESBYTERIAN / DIRECTED BY MELISSA GUFFEY / A PLAY BY RICK ELICE / MUSIC BY WAYNE BARKER / BASED ON THE NOVEL BY DAVE BARRY AND RIDLEY PEARSON

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.


The disciplined ensemble worked together with precision and panache to create impressive stage illusions. It’s amazing what this company can do with a little piece of rope….A fine cast and crew….This entire production was quite a feather in Take Two’s cap.
— Gerry Kowarsky, Two on the Aisle
