Throw open the window and escape to Neverland with Wendy, John, Michael, and the one and only wild-child, Peter Pan. Trey McIntyre’s highly praised take on the boy who refused to grow up is a playful and thrilling interpretation of J.M. Barrie’s 1911 novella that juxtaposes childhood whimsy with the weighty responsibilities of adulthood. ‘Pan features spectacular flying sequences, swashbuckling sword fights, giant puppets, and of course, Tinker Bell! Set to a soaring score by Sir Edward Elgar, arranged by founding OBT Orchestra Music Director Niel DePonte, with elaborate sets by Thomas Boyd and colorful, punk-fashion inspired costumes from Broadway great Jeanne Button, this magical ballet is sure to enthrall audiences of all ages!
