Valley Playhouse is pleased to start its 2019-2020 season with the children’s classic. PETER PAN, by J.M. Barrie.
Directed by Marissa Plummer and Frank Dellorco.
“Peter Pan,” also known as the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, was originally produced in 1904 at the Duke of York’s Theater and ran for 145 performances. Peter Pan was later published as a novel in 1911. The story was popularized by Disney in 1953, and since the animated feature, Peter Pan has become a household name.
The Story: Peter Pan stumbles into the Darlings’ world to look for his shadow. Wendy, the Darlings’ daughter, fixes his shadow with a simple stitch. In return, Peter brings her and her brothers, John and Michael, to his home, the island of Neverland. The Darlings’ then encounter the wonderful world of mischief, music, and magic as they meet the Lost Ones, the Picaninny, mermaids, and Captain Hook and his minion pirates.
