Winner of five Tony Awards, Peter
Winner of five Tony Awards, Peter and the Starcatcher is a hilarious, hair-raising, and heartwarming prequel to the Peter Pan legend, and a celebration of the innocence, imagination and resilience of the Child.
Singapore, 1885: we join Molly (a precocious young Starcatcher-in-training) and three orphan boys on a secret mission – a perilous voyage across seas infested by treacherous pirates, fearsome savages, and dubious mermaids, to a faraway island ruled by an evil king. All for the sake of the mystical, mythical “starstuff,” a celestial substance so powerful, it must never fall into the wrong hands. With the dastardly Black Stache in hot pursuit, the vengeful Fighting Prawn and Hawking Clam lurking in the deep, and the mysterious Mr Grin hungry for his next meal, will the children survive the dangers, find the elusive Neverland and live happily ever after?
Featuring a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Pangdemonium’s production of Peter and the Starcatcher will be specially adapted to an Asian setting, and is also the company’s very first family show! Full of wit and wonder, colourful characters, and fabulous musical numbers, this is an exhilarating, magical adventure for everyone from 7 to 107, and a timely statement on empowering every child with self-belief, courage and hope.
Starring Thomas Pang, Carina McWhinnie, Andrew Marko, Salif Hardie, Benjamin Chow, Daniel Jenkins, Andy Tear, Crispian Chan, Erwin Shah Ismail, Zachary Ibrahim, Juwanda Hassim and Adrian Pang.
Directed by Tracie Pang.
