Peter Pan at the Bartlesville Community CenterChildren's Musical Theatre of Bartlesville announces J. M. Barrie's classic "PETER PAN" coming to Bartlesville Community Center July 17-20, 2014.

First produced on Broadway with Mary Martin and Cyril Richard, this is one of the world's most celebrated musicals. Here is all the charm of J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, the children Wendy, Michael, and John, pirates and Indians, embellished with the show-stopping songs, "Never Never Land," "I Won't Grow Up," and "I'm Flying."

The Darling household is a place of joy, consisting of the three children, Wendy, John, and Michael; the practical and sometimes stern father, Mr. Darling; the loving mother, Mrs. Darling; and the children's nurse, a dog named Nana. But sneaking into the children's bedroom at night to listen to Mrs. Darling's bedtime stories is Peter Pan, who mislays his shadow one night at the Darling household. Peter returns one night to recover his lost shadow with his fairy companion, Tinker Bell. Peter begins to cry when he cannot reattach his shadow, but the resourceful Wendy sews Peter's shadow back on him. With his hope renewed, Peter convinces Wendy and her brothers to accompany him to Neverland, by teaching them how to fly. Off they soar, over the rooftops of London to Neverland, where Peter's comrades, the lost boys, share the island with the mean pirates, led by Captain Hook, and the Indian tribe led by their chief and princess, Tiger Lily. Together, Wendy, Michael, and John follow Peter on his adventures through Neverland as he dances with the Indians, horses around with the lost boys, and battles with his nemesis Captain Hook! A delightful romp, this musical based on J. M. Barrie's classic tale is sure to bring out one's inner child.
