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

This was a very enjoyable musical. Very funny, imaginative, and well put together. Yes the jokes are similar to that of the movie but there are just enough differences to make it a refreshing experience and still enjoy the classic one liners. "Puttin on the Ritz" was spectacular. Would definitely reccomsnd it to friends.

This wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Frankenstein legend follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that's Fronkensteen) as he attempts to create a monster — but not without scary and hilarious complications. The brains behind the laughter is mad genius and three-time Tony winner Mel Brooks himself — who wrote the music and lyrics and co-wrote the book along with his record-breaking team from The Producers: five-time Tony-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman and three-time Tony-winning writer Thomas Meehan.
