Directed by Katy Emond, with musical director Nicholas Pelton, and choreographer and flight director Matthew Burke, the show is expected to feature theatrical flight.

With the assistance of Flying by FOY, a company that specializes in theatrical flight, Peter Pan and Tinkerbell, played by Nieva Schemm and Molly Howe, will fly through the stage and theater.

Based on J.M. Barrie's classic 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 frequently performed family plays of all time.

This Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world for 60 years. Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and with a sprinkle of pixie dust begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget.

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. The show features the iconic songs “I'm Flying,” “I've Gotta Crow,” “I Won't Grow Up,” and “Never Never Land.”
