The story

This prequel to “Peter Pan” introduces us to 13-year-old Molly Aster who finds herself in the company of pirates, a giant crocodile, and angry Mollusks as she and three orphan boys (one of whom happens to be unnamed) attempt to return a trunk of precious starstuff to her father. Adventures abound as a mustached pirate captain and his sidekick Smee pursue them. Along the way, Molly learns what it means to grow up. The nameless orphan and his friends take up residence on the island where dreams are born and time is never planned - the island where that nameless orphan is christened Peter Pan. This 5-time Tony Award winning play features a dozen actors playing more than 100 unforgettable characters using talent, stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination.

To have faith is to have wings.
