PETER PAN Announces Neverland Festival

threesixty° entertainment announces its Neverland Festival featuring "Free Movie Tuesdays" and other free family-fun activities prior to performances at the threesixty° site throughout the summer at the Tribune Freedom Center, located at 650 W. Chicago Ave (in between Halsted St. and the Chicago River).

Activities include:

Classic movies will be shown in the PETER PAN Tent on a full size movie screen. These movies are free to all on a first-come, first-serve basis. Theatre site opens at 6:30 p.m. and movies begin at 7:00 p.m. Including: July 19 Ghostbusters; July 26 Back to the Future; Aug. 2 The Karate Kid; Aug. 9 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Aug. 16 Sixteen Candles. The Pavilion will be open for the purchase of refreshments.

Prior to all performances Wednesday through Friday, children can participate in a free Neverland Coloring Corner, History of PETER PAN Exhibit, Sword Fighting demonstrations with the Peter Pan cast, plus all children who dress in Neverland Character Costumes will receive a Peter Pan Candy Award! All of this fun is on-site at the threesixty° Theatre.

In addition to the pre-show Coloring Corner, Costume Awards, and History of PETER PAN Exhibit there will be "Talk Like a Pirate" lessons - "ARGH!" Plus, there will be a hometown Chicago Rock Band, appropriately named The Lost Boys, who will perform prior to both shows on Saturday and following both Sunday performances.

Neverland, on-site at the threesixty° Theatre, is the place to be this summer. No tickets are necessary for these free activities. However, no trip to Neverland is complete without seeing the spectacular stage production of J M Barrie's PETER PAN, performing through Aug. 21, 2011. What Dean Richards (WGN-TV/Radio) calls "A MUST SEE" and Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun-Times heralds the threesixty° Theatre and PETER PAN as "a grand Neverland." Conceived by an award-winning creative team and featuring 23 actors, stunning puppets, epic music, dazzling flying sequences and the world's first 360-degree CGI theater set, PETER PAN is an extraordinary experience.

Tickets for PETER PAN through Aug. 21, 2011 are on sale and range in price from $25 to $75. Additionally, Premium Ticket Packages are available, which include a prime seat location, a Chicago tote bag and a commemorative souvenir program. Tickets are available online at and and by phone at 888-PPANTIX. Tickets are also available at all Broadway In Chicago box offices and through Ticketmaster. For groups of 15 or more, call (312) 977?1710. Special behind-the-scenes "Into Neverland" tours will be available Saturdays throughout the run.
