"Peter and the Starcatcher" will return in the spring.

The prequel to Peter Pan is making its way onto Broadway, the Associated Press reports.

Producers said that Peter and the Starcatcher will make its debut in the spring. The play, from Disney, was last performed off-Broadway at the New York Theatre Workshop earlier this year and earned five Drama Desk nominations.

Written by Tony Award nominee Rick Elice and co-directed by Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, 12 actors will play roughly 50 different characters in the production. Peter and the Starcatcher is based on the book of the same name by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson.

The cast and venue will be announced shortly.
