I am looking to organize a group of homeschoolers to go to Peter and the Starcatchers, a Broadway musical that is on tour and coming to Providence early next year. I would need to have enough interested families by November hold the reservation, but the sooner the better for the best tickets.
If we can get 16 people interested (with my family of 4), we can go see Peter and the Starcatchers at PPAC in Providence, RI on Wednesday, February 26th at 7 PM. The price would be $25.00 (including fee) for 1st Dress Balcony, a nice place for kids and families. This reflects a 50% discount off regular ticket prices.

To make this a educational and literary journey, there is a lesson plan available here for the book Peter and the Starcatchers, a prequel to Peter Pan: http://www.lesn.appstate.edu/fryeem/RE4030/Pirates/Peter/peter_and_the_starcatchersoutline.htm
About the show:
“PETER AND THE STARCATCHER, the most magical evening of madcap fun is now on tour! Hailed by The New York Times as “THE MOST EXHILARATING STORYTELLING ON BROADWAY IN DECADES,” this musical play takes a hilarious romp through the Neverland you never knew. The winner of 5 Tony Awards®, this swashbuckling prequel to Peter Pan will have you hooked from the moment you let your imagination take flight.
PETER AND THE STARCATCHER is the innovative and imaginative musical play based on the best-selling Disney-Hyperion novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. A company of twelve actors plays more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up? This epic origin story of popular culture’s most enduring and beloved character proves that your imagination is the most captivating place in the world.”
