About the Company
A reimagining of Peter Pan as told by Wendy Darling…
Wendy gazes out at the night sky dreaming of blue lagoons, magical moons and most of all, stories. And tonight, there’s magic in the air. Fly with Wendy and her brothers as they create the world of Neverland, where time stands still and the impossible seems possible. Even everyday objects become extraordinary under the magical moon.
A sparkling new production written by international award winning writer Mike Kenny, scored with exquisite live music and songs, enthralling movement and a sprinkle of fairy dust.
Best for Grades: K-5th
Audience Size: Small to Medium Venues
