PETER PAN: The Musical Flies Into The Orpheum Theatre 11/27, 12/4
The enduring tale of "Peter Pan" has captured the imaginations of children and adults for over one hundred years and during the weekends of November 27th and December 4th the magic and wonder of Neverland will descend upon the Orpheum Theatre, Foxboro, Ma.
The adventures of "the boy who wouldn't grow up" begins after the Darling children, Wendy (Kelly Newton of Mansfield, Ma), Michael (Andrew Purdy of Franklin, Ma) and John (Conor Bunker of Walpole, Ma) are tucked away in bed and, supposedly, sound asleep. That's when Peter Pan (Nicole Cayer of North Providence RI) and Tinkerbell fly through the nursery window and whisk them away into the night. Of course, they end up in that amazing place called Neverland, where their adventures include encounters with the Lost Boys, an exotic princess named Tiger Lily (Laura Gustafson of Attleboro Ma) and the terrible Captain Hook (Daniel Kozar of Franklin, Ma) with his band of pirates. It's up to Peter to save his friends from the evil pirate and get them safely back to bed.
Based on J.M. Barrie's famous children's story (published in 1911), this musical production will feature the magic of flying, provided by the world renowned Flying by Foy. Flying by Foy is the same company that flew Mary Martin's Peter Pan character on Broadway in the 1950s, and has successfully impressed audiences around the world with productions including the Broadway hits "Billy Elliott", Mary Poppins" and "Wicked".
Performances will be held at the Orpheum Theatre Foxboro on Friday November 27 and December 4 at 7:30 pm, Saturday November 28th and December 5th at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm and Sunday November 29th and December 6th at 2:00 pm.
