PETER AND THE STARCATCHER

PLAYMAKERS REPERTORY COMPANY, CHAPEL HILL

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 18–SATURDAY, DEC. 12

Now that Pan has flown in and out of movie theaters faster than Peter Pan himself, take a look at another alternate origin for the Boy Who Never Grew Up in Peter and the Starcatcher. Based on Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's young adult novels, it's a delightfully handmade production combining a minimum of actors, props and backdrops with a fast-moving, humorous adventure that provides big laughs without taking itself too seriously. The "origin" moment of Captain Hook gets guffaws with the repetition of three simple words for nearly five minutes. If you missed it when Broadway Series South staged it at Raleigh's Memorial Auditorium in March, catch it now—it proves you can create a wondrous all-ages adventure using imagination more than spectacle, something the makers of Pan no doubt learned the hard way. 7:30 p.m. Tues.­–Sat. (except Nov. 26 and Dec. 8–9); 2 p.m. Sun. (and Nov. 28), $15–$54,

150 Country Club Road, Chapel Hill, 919-962-7529, www.playmakersrep.org.Zack Smith
