On October 7th, The Growing Stage – The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey kicks off its 35th season with the Tony Award-winning Broadway hit “Peter and the Starcatcher.” It tells the story of how a wayward orphan became Peter Pan – the famous, flying boy from Neverland who wouldn’t grow up. Cutthroat pirates, unlikely heroes, a treacherous jungle island, a giant crocodile, mermaids and a treasure chest full of mysterious starstuff make “Peter and the Starcatcher” a family-friendly adventure worthy of J. M. Barrie’s classic “Peter Pan” (which premiered as a play in 1904, then appeared in the form of a novel in 1911). Christopher Benincasa recently spoke with director Stephen L. Fredericks about bringing this beloved and critically acclaimed work of theatre to The Growing Stage.
