The band of friends meet up with the Lost Boys and adventure through Neverland to save Tiger Lily (Kathryn Davidson) and fight off the dreadful pirate Captain Hook (Phoebe Faile).

Audiences can enjoy mermaid songs, sprightly pirate fights, and endearing storytelling.

“Peter Pan Jr.” is directed by Mandy Maloney and produced by Tina Brinson. Assistant Directors are James Swendsen and Lindsey Chambers with musical direction by Justin Karch.
