With performances October 17-19 and October 24-26, Peter Pan will launch FPAC’s 24th season and premiere year in THE BLACK BOX, the company’s new home and performance venue in downtown Franklin. The TONY Award-winning musical features such memorable songs as “I’m Flying,” “I Won’t Grow Up,” “I’ve Gotta Crow” and “Never Never Land,” along with iconic characters Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, and the Darling children, Wendy, Michael and John.
