If only it were as easy as in the story. A bit of pixie dust and some happy thoughts, and suddenly, Wendy, John and Michael Darling are flying off to Neverland with Peter Pan. Magically, they embark on a thrilling adventure, complete with mermaids, pirates, Indians and lost boys.
It’s a tale of discovery – Wendy and Peter learn about who they are and what happy thoughts can allow them to do.
The story is similar for the cast, crew and audience of the Variety Children’s Theatre presentation of Peter Pan this October at the Touhill.
As in years past, Variety will stage its production with a cast of professional actors, a live orchestra with 21 musicians, glorious sets and brilliant costumes.
At each performance, the entire cast and crew, as well as the audience, share in more than the enchantment of an outstanding classic Broadway musical theatre production. Everyone is transformed by Variety’s mantra, “I CAN!” And this year will be no different as the audience experiences the carefree and enchanted feeling of childhood.
Variety Children’s Theatre productions make it look as easy as pixie dust and happy thoughts. And most importantly, when the curtain drops, there’s no doubt that everyone is capable of flying.
Tickets go on sale August 1 through the Touhill Performing Arts Center.
