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

The heroine, Rosalind, is one of Shakespeare's most inspiring characters and has more lines than any of Shakespeare's female characters. Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke falls in love with Orlando the disinherited son of one of the duke's friends. When she is banished from the court by her usurping uncle, Duke Frederick, Rosalind takes on the appearance of a boy calling herself Ganymede. She travels with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone to the Forest of Arden, where her father and his friends live in exile. Themes about life and love, including aging, the natural world, and death are included in the play. New friends are made and families are reunited. By the end of the play Ganymede, once again Rosalind, marries Orlando. Orlando and Rosalind, Oliver and Celia, Silvius and Phebe, and Touchstone and Audrey all are married in the final scene. Oliver becomes a gentler, kinder young man so the Duke changes his ways and turns to religion and so that the exiled Duke, father of Rosalind, can rule once again.
