The story begins in modern times, where 13-year-old Wendy is off on an ‘awfully big adventure’ to visit her father who had recently divorced Wendy’s mum. Wendy is sweet and innocent, and oblivious to the crime going on around her as she walks through the neighborhood. Wendy meets an orphan named Peter Pan, who takes Wendy’s hand and flies around the world to Neverland where they encounter the lost boys, pirates, mermaids and fairies and are swept up in the magic of Peter’s world. Will Peter Pan beat the villainous Captain Hook? Will Wendy ever get back to her father? Will Peter remain an orphan boy forever?

“The key words to describe Neverland are total magic and enchantment.” – East Midlands Theatre (UK)
