More than any other show, Peter Pan is one musical that's truly "highflying." Like its titular hero, Pan never gets old: In the century since J.M. Barrie dreamed up Peter and his fairy sidekick, Tinker Bell, his story has only increased its magical ability to astonish generations of children. Join the Darling kids as they fly off with Peter to Neverland. There, alongside the Lost Boys, they will encounter numerous adventures, including a battle against the dreaded Captain Hook and his pirate crew. Lyric Light Opera presents a new production of this Tony-winning Broadway adaptation, complete with pixie dust. Learn More

Please go and see this play. The story line of what women go through on release from prison is perfectly scripted and performed. It is a psychological drama that had me bouncing between laughing and wanting to cry and everything in between. Emily Chisholm and Christina Mastin acted out their characters with extremely compelling realism. Sheila Daniels as Director again showed her brilliant ability to stage the production with perfect timing and maximizing the human emotions of the actors. Kudos to staff at Seattle Public Theater for choosing the script by Chloe Moss. She wrote about the effects of incarceration on women so convincingly.
Quotes & Highlights
“The play is shaped with compassion, but there is never even an echo of special pleading. Ms. Moss’s goal is to convey, in visceral terms, the disorientation of lives resumed after rending, warping interruptions. And you don’t have to have done time to identify with Lorraine and Marie’s addled, anguished sense of time.” —New York Times

Special Post-Play discussions on Saturday, May 26 and Sunday, May 27. SPT Artistic Director, Shana Bestock and Director Sheila Daniels lead an illuminating panel discussion with former prison inmates and leaders from the Project IF. These discussions will take place directly after the play.
Project IF has been asking women in prison, “If there was something someone could have said or done that would have changed the path that led you here, what would it have been?” The women’s responses are videotaped, and a team of former inmates, uses the videos in workshops with Seattle’s at-risk youth.
Recommended for teens on up.
