Chicago Ave (in between Halsted St. and the Chicago River).

WEDNESDAYS - FRIDAYS - NEVERLAND ACTIVITY NIGHTS
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.

SATURDAY AND SUNDAYS - NEVERLAND ACTIVITIES CONTINUE WITH LIVE BAND PERFORMANCES
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 www.BroadwayInChicago.com and www.peterpantheshow.com 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.
