About the Show
Directed by John Krol
By Willis Hall, George Stiles, Anthony Drewe
The legend of Peter Pan has been delighting children for over 100 years and this faithful new version is a festive adventure, perfect for the whole family. Featuring music and lyrics by the award-winning duo George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, we join Peter and the Darling family as they are whisked away to the famous land full of colorful characters including the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily and, of course, the dastardly Captain Hook. With a spectacular mix of swashbuckling adventure and an infectious score, Peter Pan is guaranteed to bring forth one's inner child, and send you reeling "Just Beyond the Stars."
Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure is produced by Special Arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Rehearsal & Performance Information
Performances: Nov 22-Dec 15, 2019. Please note that this production runs for 4 weeks.
Looking for a diverse group of excellent singer-actors, who are energetic and imaginative “children” that won’t grow up to portray:
Peter Pan: Tenor or High Baritone. The clever, adventurous, and confident leader of the Lost Boys. While at times he is boastful and self- centered, there is a side of Peter that is caring and joyous. His desire to stay a child forever allows him to continue his adventures unburdened by the realities of growing up. He is the embodiment of youthful naïveté. Songs: Neverland, Build A House, The Cleverness of Me, When I Kill Peter Pan, One Big Adventure, There’s Always Tomorrow.
Wendy: Mezzo soprano. A girl befriended by Peter Pan and who flies with him to Neverland to be a mother for him and the Lost Boys. Songs: Neverland, The Cleverness of Me, Just Beyond The Stars (Reprise), One Big Adventure
Captain Hook/Mr. Darling: Baritone. The sinister pirate captain. Carries himself with an elegance that shows him to be a different class from his crew. Songs: When I Kill Peter Pan, Rose Tinted Eye-Patch, A Pirate with a Conscience
Smee: Baritone. Captain Hook’s off-sider. Has the best intentions but is not very smart. Songs: Rose Tinted Eye-Patch, A Pirate with a Conscience -- great comic timing
Storyteller: Alto/Mezzo. The female narrator of the story, a grandmother, who joins in the plot nearing the end. Songs: Something In The Air Tonight, Just Home
Michael: Boy soprano; John: boy alto or tenor. The two Darling Boys. Playful children who love Wendy’s stories and enjoy adventure Songs: Neverland
