Theatre for Young America will bring PETER PAN, J.M. Barrie’s beloved story of the boy who never grew up, to life June 19 through July 7 at H&R Block’s City Stage in Union Station.
The 60-minute production will feature a group of child actors, along with Kyra Weinberger (Peter Pan), Jamie Turner (Wendy), Coleman Crenshaw (Captain Hook), and Parry Luellen, Arianna Bartolotta, and Alex Walters.
From the press release: “The first scene is set in the Darling children’s bedroom in about 1904. The family who live in this house are Mr. Darling, the father; Mrs. Darling, the mother; Wendy, the oldest child; John, the middle child; and Michael, the youngest child. When their parents are working, the children are watched by a nurse named Nana, who happens to be a Newfoundland dog! Sneaking into the children’s bedroom at night to listen to Mrs. Darling’s bedtime stories is Peter Pan. One night Nana and Mrs. Darling see him and try to stop him, but he flies away. Peter returns after Mr. and Mrs. Darling have gone to a dinner party. He brings with him his fairy, Tinker Bell, a mischievous ball of light that zips around the nursery, waking up Wendy.”
PETER PAN runs June 17th – July 7th at the H&R Block City Stage, located on level B in Union Station. For more information visit tya.org.
