The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis continues its season with the Tony Award-winning Peter and the Starcatcher. This swashbuckling production, adapted by Rick Elice from Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's novel, is an origin story for J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan. Molly, a rookie starcatcher (a being who gathers fallen stars so they can't be used for evil), is charged with safeguarding starstuff from the dread pirate Black Stache. She attempts to engage a nameless orphan boy as an ally, but she has to convince him to trust himself before he can trust her. Peter and the Starcatcher is performed Tuesday through Sunday (December 4 through 27; no shows on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day) at Webster University's Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; 314-968-4925 or www.repstl.org). Tickets are $17.50 to $79.50.
