Written in 1904 as a play and soon adapted into a novel by the original author, J.M. Barrie of England, Peter Pan has gone through many transformations, including a silent film version in 1924, Disney’s animated version in 1953, the stage musical in 1954, and many adventures featuring one or more of the primary characters. In 1929, Barrie gifted copyright of the Peter Pan works to a children’s hospital in London where they are still held.
The story of Peter Pan centers around a young boy, named Peter, who lives in Neverland, a place where time halts and people never grow older. Periodically, Peter journeys to London and gazes through windows and into the life he’s missing. His favorite view is that which belongs to the nursery of the three Darling children, Wendy, John, and Michael. One particular night, Wendy and Peter meet and he convinces her and her brothers to fly back with him to Neverland, where they meet with many adventures involving indians, other Lost Boys who claim Wendy as their mother, and a band of pirates led by the infamous Captain Hook.
Sponsored by Lubbock National Bank, Peter Pan is the second production of our 2016-17 Moonlight Broadway season.
Performances April 21-23 coincide with the Lubbock Arts Alliance annual Arts Festival, held at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center Exhibit Hall. “Peter Pan” tickets purchased for these dates receive complementary admission to the Arts Festival.
