BANGOR – Who was the boy who never grew up before he never grew up?

That’s the question asked and answered by “Peter and the Starcatcher,” the latest production from Penobscot Theatre Company. The play – adapted by Rick Elice from the 2004 novel “Peter and the Starcatchers” by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson – serves as a prequel of sorts to the classic J.M. Barrie tales of the one, the only Peter Pan.

The Bangor Opera House springs to raucous, rowdy life with this piece. Directed by Matt Hawkins, it’s a chance for audiences to learn the origin of the original Lost Boy, as well as meet the girl who helped set him on the path he would eventually follow. Laughter and thrills abound as this rollicking adventure plays out on the high seas and beyond.

Packed with pirates and pratfalls and plenty of music – directed by Kevin O’Donnell – and magic, featuring some stellar performances and phenomenal production values, “Peter and the Starcatcher” promises loads of holiday fun for the whole family. The show runs through December 29.
