Based on Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's best-selling novels about a young orphan and his mates are taken from England to a distant island ruled by an evil king.


Cardboard Playhouse Theatre Company, winner of The Alibi’s Best of Burque for Best Theatre Company and Best theatre performance will tell the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be the The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan) at the South Broadway Cultural Center later this month. This will be the New Mexico Premiere.

Tony Award-winning Peter and the Starcatcher is 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.

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil 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 ship is taken over by pirates - led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own - the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.
