Article Pixel

Believe in magic this Holiday Season at the Fulton Theatre! Peter Pan flies in, November 14 through December 29, with previews November 12 & 13. An adventure for the entire family, Peter Pan is being produced on the grand scale of the Fulton's Beauty and the Beast.

Based on J.M. Barrie's classic tale, Peter Pan is one of the most beloved family favorites of all time. This high-flying musical follows Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, as they visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.

The character Peter Pan first appeared in the novel The Little White Bird in 1902 and later in a 1904 play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. The Broadway Musical version premiered in 1954 at the Winter Garden Theatre, starring Mary Martin. Peter Pan, between the play and the musical, has been produced on Broadway 13 times, often times revived for the holiday season; the last musical production took place at the Gershwin Theatre in 1999.
