Peter Pan, The Musical will be our 2023 Summer Celebration Show!  Get ready for a magical show, filled with pirates, fairies, crocodiles and flying!  Showing TWO weekends in June - 1st-3rd and 8th-10th!



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 warrior tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook!

Based on J.M. Barrie's classic tale and featuring an unforgettable score by Morris Charlap and Julie Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Peter Pan is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. This high-flying Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years.
