Missoula Children's Theatre presents Peter and Wendy on Saturday, August 6 at 3pm and 5:30pm.
The Missoula Children's Theatre is the world's largest touring children's theater. They send two professionals, a truck full of costumes, set pieces, and props. On Monday, they audition children and choose around 60 for the production. They rehearse all week and perform two shows on Saturday.
They adapt the plays for a large cast of children and the results are charming and entertaining.
Peter and Wendy
Conceived and Written by Michael McGill
Music and Lyrics by Michael McGill
When Captain Hook sends his right-hand man Smee on a quest to capture Peter Pan, it's seemingly business as usual ... at first.
Little does Hook realize what fantastic adventures await him and his pirate posse in their search for the elusive Peter Pan. Mistaken identities, ever-morphing clouds, a classy crocodile, some very lost boys, and a fickle shadow all add to the mayhem.
Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Darling embark on a quest of their own and find themselves trekking everywhere from Hawaii to the North Pole in search of their three missing children.
With help from the earth-friendly Neverlanders, exotic Neverland creatures, and faithful Tinker Bell, the Darling children are found, disputes are ultimately resolved, and everyone - including Captain Hook - finds a place where they truly belong.
Tickets $10 for adults/ $8 for children
When: Saturday, August 6, 3pm and 5:30pm
