Let’s be honest — growing up sucks, which is why the mischievous, green tunic-wearing dreamer, Peter Pan, had the right idea all along. Based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, Peter and the Starcatcher provides the backstories of an orphaned Peter, Tinker Bell, and that rude as hell, black mustachioed Captain Hook. It’s a harrowing seaward tale of how three orphan boys and Molly — the daughter of Starcatcher Lord Aster — rebel against a pirate attack in hopes of protecting a certain magical dust that if in the wrong hands, could be bad news. The rest is history.

Peter and the Starcatcher begins on Friday, Nov. 30 at Stagecrafters; performance times vary; 415 S. Lafayette Ave., Royal Oak; stagecrafters.org; 248-541-6430; stagecrafters.com; Tickets are $23-$27.
