This fun musical stage adaptation of the classic book by J.M. Barrie and the beloved 1953 animated film is the story of the boy who wouldn't grow up. Young Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces that it's time for her to move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, mermaids, Tinkerbell and even the dastardly Captain Hook. It's a manageable 60 minutes in length, so the whole family can thrill to this modern version of a classic musical tale performed by young local actors between the ages of 5 and 18. Learn More

I had seen the original Broadway Play, and then the movie. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Orchestra and the singing. The low point, although totally acceptable, was the dance. Well Done DMTC. You'll see be back for more.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Stop what you’re doing right now and call for tickets to the Davis Musical Theatre Company’s amazing new production of Kander & Ebb’s Tony Award-winning Chicago. This is one of the best DMTC productions I’ve seen in a long time." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.davisenterprise.com/entertainment/music/dmtc-jazzes-it-up-with-a-stellar-chicago/"><em>Davis Enterprise </em></a>
Directed by John Ewing, choreographed by Pamela Lourentzos, with music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb, and musical direction by Steve Isaacson and Jonathan Rothman, Chicago is based on actual scandalous headlines from 1924. Set during prohibition, the satirical musical re-tells the tale of two murderous females whose sensational stories created a media frenzy. The musical was originally a play written by a Chicago Tribune reporter, Maurine Dallas Watkins, who used her own news stories about two real-life femme fatales and turned them into a fictionalized accounting of the events. Today, the musical resonates with audiences more than ever as it foreshadowed America’s love affair with celebrity criminals and justice.
Recommended for mature audiences.
