Peter And the Starcatcher Alumni Reception

Event, Reception


Join Adelphi alumni, friends, and the cast of Peter And the Starcatcher for an exclusive alumni pre-reception.

More information coming soon!


About the Play:

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).  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.

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the King Zarboff.  They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo.  At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands.  When the hip is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasures for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.
