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
Reviews & Ratings
Directed and choreographed by Jan Isaacson, with musical direction by Chris Congdon, Bye Bye Birdie is a ripped-from-the-headlines satire from the 1950s. When an over-the-top rocker is drafted, his publicity agents concoct a way to capitalize on the loss of their biggest star, by creating a press frenzy around a sheltered Midwest teen that will receive the idol’s last kiss before serving his country. The show is filled with unforgettable tunes from Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, such as "Put On a Happy Face," One Boy" and "A Lot Of Living To Do."
