Based on J.M. Barrie's original play, Peter Pan (or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up), Peter Pan JR. is a contemporary adaptation for the youth stage featuring music from the original Tony Award-winning musical, that has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for decades.
“We ’re absolutely thrilled to welcome audiences to our performances of Peter Pan, Jr,” say’s OYES Co-Artistic Director, Daena Santoyo. “We chose this version of Peter Pan because of it’s wit, charm, and dramatic flare. We are extremely proud of the dedication and hard work our young performers, production team, and volunteers, have put into this production. We can’t wait to share the experience with the community.”
The musical features music by Morris (Moose) Charlap with additional music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Carolyn Leigh with additional lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The show was originally directed, choreographed and adapted by Jerome Robbins.
In P eter Pan JR. W endy, Michael and John Darling befriend Peter Pan when the mysterious boy and a fairy named Tinker Bell enter their nursery in search of Peter’s lost shadow. Peter whisks his new friends away to Neverland, an island with “hardly any space between one adventure and the other.” There, Peter introduces the Darling children to his fellow Lost Boys, children who – like Peter – never grow up. The crew launches into a great adventure where they encounter Brave Girls, led by the incredible Tiger Lily, and Pirates led by the dreaded Captain Hook. Will they ever return home to the nursery?
Peter Pan JR. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI,
