The Center Theatre Group presents the five-time Tony Award-winning musical "Peter and the Starcatcher," based on the children's novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, which serves as a prequel to J. M. Barrie's classic classic story "Peter Pan."

From the CTG website:

The imaginative play tells the tale of an orphan who heads to a faraway land, where he finds love, friendship, and, ultimately, himself. "Peter and the Starcatcher" is comprised of a company of 12 actors playing more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up?
"Peter and the Starcatcher" is written by Rick Elice and directed by Roger Rees and Alex Timbers. Performances are Tuesday-Friday at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., through Jan. 12.
