Lewis University's Philip Lynch Theatre (PLT) will present Peter and the Starcatcher a play by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys and Addams Family) based on the 2004 novel by humorist Dave Barry and suspense writer Ridley Pearson. Elice's play, Peter and the Starcatcher, received nine 2012 Tony Award nominations (including two for Elice) and won five Tonys.

Before Wendy... before he was Captain Hook... before a boy was given the name Peter Pan...and before there was a Neverland, there was a Starcatcher Apprentice named Molly, a pirate named Black Stache, and a nameless orphan...and they are about to be thrown together in a perilous and wildly hilarious adventure on the high seas. But, of course none of this actually exists, unless you are prepared to use your imagination. In Peter and the Starcatcher the play up ends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up, a.k.a. Peter Pan, (Bradford Bingham of Chicago). The show playfully explores the depths of greed, the bonds of friendship, duty, and love. A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly (Alieen O'Carroll of Orland Park), 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 ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome villain Black Stache (Austin Jones of Steger), the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure. Peter and the Starcatcher will be performed on April 12-14 and April 25-28 and is recommended for patrons of all ages.
