Aurora, CO -- Re-discover the timeless tale of Peter Pan through a partnership with the Aurora Public Library and the Denver Center Attractions (DCA).
Peter and the Starcatcher is launching its national tour in Denver, and, in cooperation with Denver Center Attractions, families have the opportunity to join a special book club. You will read “Peter and the Starcatchers,” attend an interactive workshop with an educator from the Denver Center Theatre Academy and have an opportunity to purchase discounted tickets for the stage performance where participants enjoy a mayhem-filled afternoon of madcap fun and “the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades” (New York Times); a hilarious romp through the Neverland you never knew. With enormous talent, ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination, you’ll experience the story of the boy who becomes Pan – through the pages of a magical book, and the imagination of a talented cast of actors. In 2004, humorist Dave Barry and author Ridley Pearson collaborated to tell the tale of how Peter Pan came to be in Peter and the Starcatchers.  The book quickly became a New York Times Bestseller, and gained the attention of playwrights, and adapted to the stage in a production that has won five Tony Awards.
Copies of “Peter and the Starcatchers” may be picked up at the Mission Viejo and Tallyn’s Reach Libraries beginning on July 13. Registration into the book discussion group is required.  The book discussions are for ages 4th grade to adult, and will be held on August 8:

Tallyn’s Reach Library     2 p.m.
Mission Viejo Library      4 p.m.

For more information about the book club, call Megan Ellis, 303-739-7473.
Once you’ve registered for the book club, you’ll receive a code to order your discounted tickets for the stage production at The Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Available performances:

- Saturday, August 17 at 7:30pm
- Sunday, August 18 at 2:00pm

Tickets may be purchased for the whole family; the play is suitable for younger audiences, but most enjoyable for those 10 and older.
