Peter and the Starcatcher
A play by Rick Elice
Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Music by Wayne Barker


Before Neverland there was an island. Before Captain Hook, a moustachioed pirate. Before Wendy, her mother Molly. Before Peter, a nameless orphan. 

Peter and the Starcatcher, the smash hit Broadway production and winner of 5 Tony Awards, will have its Australian Premiere, touring nationally from 2024.

Originally developed by Disney Theatrical Group, written by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys, Addams Family), with music by Wayne Barker, this all-new production is directed by David Morton (Holding Achilles, The Wider Earth).

Reimagined by Dead Puppet Society, this highly anticipated version of Peter and the Starcatcher blurs the lines between reality and fantasy, traversing oceans of mystical mermaids, and lands of curious creatures. 

Experience the joy of this theatrical spectacle with over 100 unforgettable characters, puppetry, live music, and technical wizardry - jump onboard this epic pre-Pan voyage and discover the untold story of Neverland.
