Celebrate the holidays as Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of the Darling children and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates, and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook. This high-flying fantasy will delight audiences of all ages when Atlanta Lyric Theatre’s new production of PETER PAN plays the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on December 9 & 10. Tickets are on sale NOW at www.TicketMaster.com or by calling 800-745-3000.
Based on Sir J.M. Barrie’s timeless tale, and featuring an unforgettable score by Morris “Moose” Charlap and Jule Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green, PETER PAN is one of the most beloved family favorites of all time. The musical includes the memorable songs, “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Never Never Land.” It’s truly the perfect show for the child in all of us who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up.
