‘Peter Pan’: James M. Barrie’s classic tale of the boy who won’t grow up. The Darling children act out Peter Pan stories, much to the chagrin of their grumpy father, as Peter — and his sidekick Tinkerbell — visit the nursery and whisk them off to Neverland to meet Lost Boys, noble Islanders, and pirates — including the infamous Captain Hook. Once, Peter cut off Hook’s hand and fed it to a crocodile. Ever since, there has been a bitter rivalry between the two. This joyous tribute to youth includes the songs “I’ve Gotta Crow.” “Never Neverland,” “I’m Flying,” and “Hook’s Waltz”. So come with us where dreams are born and time is never planned.
