Join Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael, and John in the high-flying timeless Broadway musical that will whisk you away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up!  On November 28th running through December 14th Centenary Stage Company will venture into “Neverland” for the family holiday production of Peter Pan.  Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale and featuring an unforgettable score by Morris “Moose” Charlap and Jule Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, Betty Comden and Adolph Green.  Peter Pan is one of the most beloved family favorites of all time.

Directed by Broadway veteran, Michael Blevins, Peter Pan features a company of 72 actors, musicians and crew working in close collaboration to bring this tale to life. The holiday musical is meant to celebrate all the programs of the Centenary Stage, including talents from professional Equity actors, as well as, members of the acclaimed Young Performers Workshop, Centenary College theatre students, and local performers.
