Broadway’s timeless classic musical whisks you away to a place where dreams are born and children never grow up! Peter Pan is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. This TONY Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for more than 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.
