Winner of five Tony Awards, this swashbuckling prequel to Peter Pan—based on the novel co-written by Dave Barry—uses a dozen actors playing more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up? “Fantastical and enchanting” (Philadelphia Inquirer), “absurdly funny” (Entertainment Weekly) and suitable for younger audiences over 10. Come take a hilarious romp through the Neverland you never knew!
