Late one night, three children wake up to find Peter Pan searching for his shadow—in their nursery! Because they love adventure, off they go—with the boy who refuses to grow up—all the way to Neverland, where they meet the Lost Boys, battle Tiger Lily and her tribe and escape from pirates led by the dasterdly Captain Hook. Let your imagination fly with them—because soon it will be time for all of us to grow up.

It’s the 110th anniversary of J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic (and the 60th anniversary of the award-winning Broadway musical)! We’ll sprinkle pixie dust as we celebrate Peter Pan with SCR’s Summer Players, talented young actors who audition for roles in the annual product after at least a year in the Theatre Conservatory. If you believe in fairies, join us!
