Davidson Community Players – “Peter Pan Jr.”

April 27 @ 7:00 pm

Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale and featuring an unforgettable score, Peter Pan is one of the most beloved favorites of all time. This high-flying, Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years. Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook. A rousing book full of magic, warmth, and adventure, “Peter Pan JR.” is the perfect show for the child in all of us… who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up.
