Peter Pan Soars into Boston

9 Nov

If you have passed by Government center recently, you may have noticed the giant white tent erected in City Hall Plaza. This 360 degree portable theatre is the temporary set of J.M. Barrie’s classic children’s story, Peter Pan. A cast of twenty-three talented British and American actors bring the play to life with dramatic acrobatic numbers accompanied by stunning CGI displays that surround the audience in the state-of-the-art circular theatre.

For those unfamiliar with the tale, Peter Pan is the story of a boy who refuses to grow up. Peter lives in Neverland, the place where dreams come alive and where kids go to remain children forever. Peter meets three young adventurers, who sneak out of their house at night and fly to Neverland with Peter and his fairy friend, Tinkerbell. Although Neverland is a child’s dreamscape, they soon learn that nightmares may dwell there too. After several encounters with Captain Hook, Peter Pan’s enemy, the children want nothing more than to return to their normal lives. Though Neverland is a wonderful place, no place is better than home. Peter Pan is a story that audiences of all ages can enjoy together.

Peter Pan will be on show in Boston through December 30th.  Tickets range in price from $35-$75. The show is recommended for children ages 5 and older. For more information, on show times, directions, and tickets, please visit the Peter Pan website here.
