“Peter Pan” is the classic story of the mischievous little boy who flies and refuses to grow up, preferring, instead, to live in mysterious Neverland, sharing adventures with the lost boys, pirates, fairies, tick-tocking crocodiles and, occasionally, real children. Our family- orientated musical includes song, dance, and action that will enthrall and engage every child from five to one hundred and five.
