The intimate Crest Theatre at
The intimate Crest Theatre at Old School Square presents Peter and the Starcatcher, the five-time Tony-winning show that The New York Times called “the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades.”
“Sweet enough for kids, sophisticated enough for grown-ups… this is the Neverland you never knew!”
Produced by the amazing Slow Burn Theatre Co., this swashbuckling prequel to “Peter Pan” upends the century-old story of how a sad orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, the show playfully explores the depths of greed and despair… and the bonds of friendship, duty and love. It’s an action-packed, madcap, music-filled adventure!
HERE’S WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING!
“Slow Burn’s Peter and the Starcatcher is pun-filled and pleasurable, a joyous balm for anyone ready to hit the pause button on worry.” – SouthFlorida.com
“Starcatcher belongs on everybody’s to-do list. Within this awfully big adventure, you may just remember how as a child, you could fly.” – Broadway World
“Slow Burn Theatre Company’s rollicking race-down-the-hill production of Peter and the Starcatcher is a joyful hoot.” – Florida Theater On Stage
Based on the best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, and written by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), this production of Peter and the Starcatcher weaves an enchanting coming-of-age tale that’s bound to appeal to your entire crew.

ABOUT SLOW BURN THEATRE CO.
In August of 2009, Slow Burn Theatre Company was born. They noticed a theatrical void in South Florida and made the commitment to do what they could to fill it. They are a locally based professional theatre company with a mission of providing South Florida’s diverse population with opportunities to experience high quality, daring, contemporary and intelligent works of musical theatre through attendance, employment, and/or educational and community outreach programs. In the years since opening their first show (Bat Boy: The Musical on Feb. 18, 2010) they’ve grown beyond expectations.
The Miami Herald’s Christine Dolen said: “Slow Burn is a musical theater company with moxie. It dares to do full productions of Stephen Sondheim’s works ( Into the Woods is up next, with Sweeney Todd set for next season), shows that fall into the just-fun category (this summer’s Xanadu, a musical performed on roller skates, and next summer’s The Wedding Singer) and unusual pieces like Side Show, about conjoined twins Daisy and Violet Hilton, coming next season. Sometimes, the choices tax Slow Burn’s resources, but somehow Fitzwater and Korinko manage to deliver musicals that entertain, provoke or do both.”
