  6. Peter and the Starcatcher — An Exit 22 Company production. Ever wonder how Peter Pan got his name? Or how he met Tinkerbell? In this swashbuckling prequel to Peter Pan, actors play pirates, mermaids, jungle denizens – and of course, the beloved Lost Boys. It’s 1885, the reign of Queen Victoria, and two ships are about to set sail: The Neverland and The Wasp, the latter commandeered by Lord Aster and tasked to delivering a trunk of precious cargo to Rundoon. But another trunk is bound for The Neverland, along with three orphans — a nameless Boy with his friends Prentiss and Ted — and Lord Aster’s daughter and her nanny. Once at sea, The Wasp is taken over by the most feared pirate of the seven seas, Black Stache! It’s a rollicking tale of friendship, daring and the search for the leader in us all. — The BlueShore at Cap, Nov 16-25.
