Theatreworks USA’s live stage production of Peter Pan, is based on John Caird and Trevor Nunn’s adaptation of Peter Pan or The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up, which was developed for London’s Royal Shakespeare Company in 1982. In the spirit of J.M. Barrie’s, original tale, Theatreworks USA’s production tells the story through the eyes of a group of children who are living in Edwardian England (circa 1910), and decide on Peter Pan for that evening’s play-acting.  "First-rate Peter Pan soars -- enough charm to color several rainbows." −Courier News, IL

The performance follows faithfully to the classic story (with the omission of Tiger Lily and her tribe).  Astonished by Peter Pan’s appearance in the nursery, young Wendy, John, and Michael are intrigued by his tales of Never Land, the home of fairies, mermaids, pirates, and the poor Lost Boys who need a mother. With the help of a little fairy dust, they fly off to Never Land with Peter.  As they continue on their adventure and try to escape the evil Captain Hook and Mr. Smee, they recognize the importance of friendship as well as the value of being part of a family. This production encourages children to let their imaginations take “flight” and to create their own adventures using household objects as props and puppets as characters.  This 60-minute play is recommended for children ages 3 to 10.
