The Davis Musical Theatre Company’s Young Performers Theatre announces the opening of “Peter Pan,” the high-flying magical musical adventure that will whisk the audience away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up.
Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic book and the original 1954 Broadway production directed and staged by Jerome Robbins and starring Mary Martin, “Peter Pan” features an unforgettable score by Morris “Moose” Charlap and Jule Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green.
The musical showcases the iconic songs “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Never Never Land.” With elaborate sets and costumes, a live orchestra and a cast of actors who can really fly, there is something for everyone in this show.
“Peter Pan” runs two consecutive weekends, July 25 through Aug. 3, with performances at 7:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. All performances are at the Jean Henderson Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive.
The show is directed and choreographed by Jan Isaacson, and features Ana Chan as Peter Pan and Jenna Karoly as Captain Hook, along with Emily O’Flaherty (Wendy), Ryan Everitt (John), Sophia Farwell (Michael) and Tessa Hickman (Tiger Lily).
