Synopsis:
When Captain Hook sends his right-hand man Smee on a quest to capture Peter Pan, it’s seemingly business as usual ...at first. Little does Hook realize what fantastic adventures await him and his pirate posse in their search for the elusive Peter Pan. Mistaken identities, ever-morphing clouds, a classy crocodile, some very lost boys, and a fickle shadow all add to the mayhem. Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Darling embark on a quest of their own and find themselves trekking everywhere from Hawaii to the North Pole in search of their three missing children. With help from the earth-friendly Neverlanders, exotic Neverland creatures, and faithful Tinker Bell, the Darling children are found, disputes are ultimately resolved, and everyone–including Captain Hook–finds a place where they truly belong.

Among the roles to be cast are Peter, his Shadow, Tinkerbell, and the Lost Boys; Wendy and her brothers John and Michael; their parents Mr. and Mrs. Darling with their faithful friends Nana and Liza. Captain Hook and his Pirate Crew along with the Crocodile, Tiger Lily, the band of Neverlanders, and Neverland Creatures; and, carrying them to Neverland, a group of stormy Clouds. Assistant Directors will also be cast to aid in rehearsals throughout the week and take on essential backstage responsibilities.

This production is a musical.
