Peter and the Starcatcher
Jun 15 - Jul 16
Peter and the Starcatcher by Rick Elice
Directed and Choreographed by John Farmanesh Bocca 

The winner of 5 Tony Awards, this swashbuckling prequel to Peter Pan is "sweet enough for kids, and sophisticated enough for grown-ups". When starcatcher-in-training Molly meets an orphan boy longing for a home, they embark on the adventure of a lifetime. You'll be whisked away on a breathtaking quest to answer the question: How did a boy named Peter become the boy who never grew up? Peter and the Starcatcher takes a hilarious romp through the Neverland you never knew. In this exhilarating play with music, a dozen brilliant actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters using their enormous talent, ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination. This production will have you hooked from the moment you let your imagination take flight!

When Tom Hanks played that extra large floor piano in the motion picture BIG, it was a moment that movie goers still remember.  Audiences can relieve that moment at Carmel’s outdoor Forest Theater June 29 through July 9 in The Forest Theater Guild production,  BIG The Musical.
Directed by Walt deFaria and Gracie Poletti, the story centers around 13 year old Josh who puts a coin in a Carnival machine and gets his wish to be BIG.   The adventures that follow this little boy in a man’s  body are the perfect example of why we should be careful what we wish for. John Weidman, wrote the book, David Shire the music and Richard Maltby, Jr. the lyrics.
