Peter & The Starcatcher
The Tony-winning play, based on the best-selling novels, upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan boy becomes the legendary Peter Pan.
This version is based on the Original 2012 Broadway Version.
This is a unique orchestration in that this is a play with music and there are only two musicians, the Keyboardist and a Percussionist. The Piano/Conductor score consists of acoustic piano, a small smattering of synth patches (Piccolo, Theramin, Harmonium, Tubular Bells, Tremolo Strings, and Bells), and found object foley type sounds that are percussive in nature. Be aware that there are additional sounds and foley that are listed as cues in the part that are not designed to be played by the keyboardist but rather triggered by your sound designer or sound engineer so those will not be present in the programming. Please refer to the score for those sounds. This book requires an advanced musician to navigate all of these elements while supporting the action on stage.

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). 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.
