Disney's PETER PAN Added to Way Off Broadway's Children's Theatre Lineup
With the opening of The Children's Theatre at Way Off Broadway's 2014 Season, Bill Kiska, Way Off Broadway's Executive Producer, has also announced a change in the line-up of shows. The newly released stage production, Disney's Peter Pan Jr., will now make its area debut at Way Off Broadway beginning April 26, 2014. Peter Pan will be replacing the previously announced spring production of How I Became a Pirate.
Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!
Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie's enchanting play, Disney's Peter Pan Jr. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn't grow up with no flying required! The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs, such as "Following the Leader," "You Can Fly," "The Second Star to the Right" and "Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me."
"We are thrilled to be able to be the first theatre in the area to produce Disney's Peter Pan Jr.," said Kiska. "While we were all looking forward to How I Became a Pirate, when Peter Pan became available, there was no question we wanted to include the show in this year's line-up. Whether with our Mainstage or Children's Theatre, we are always proud to bring premieres to the Frederick stage."
Disney's Peter Pan Jr. will join Tilly the Trickster, which is currently playing at the theatre, and Disney's Alice in Wonderland Jr. and 'Twas the Night Before Christmas coming later this year.
Children's Theatre performances are every Saturday afternoon and the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, as well as select added weekday performances throughout the year. Tickets are $17 per person with birthday party packages also available.
