“Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land!” – J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
Making the impossible possible by believing.
Prepare for delightful twists in this large-scale and wondrously inventive production of J.M. Barrie’s classic tale by the magical team at Nightsong (Mr Red Light, The Worm, Te Pō). In the hands of one of New Zealand’s most innovative theatre creators, you wouldn’t expect anything less.
Imagine a tropical island where kids can run wild, with villainous pirates to fight, and there are no parents telling you when to go to bed. No wonder the spellbinding story of Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up, is still a favourite with children around the world after more than 100 years.
When Peter Pan loses his shadow, a headstrong young girl called Wendy helps him reattach it. Riotous make-believe, music and mayhem ensue as she and her two brothers fly out of their bedroom window with Peter and follow him to Neverland, where Captain Hook, Tinker Bell and the Lost Children await to take them on the greatest adventure yet.
This timeless story is guaranteed to delight anyone who believes in possibility, so let your imagination take flight. With a sprinkle of fairy dust, you’ll be on your way to Neverland: second star to the right and then straight on till morning.
Suitable for anyone who is still a child at heart. Likely to be aged seven or older.
A collaboration between Auckland Theatre Company and Nightsong. Commissioned by the ATC Patrons Group.
