James Barrie’s enchanting tale of youthful joy and adventure, Peter Pan, will take the stage at the Ambler Theatre for two performances in February. Audiences can enjoy the February 17 President’s Holiday with an 11:00 AM performance. The second show is on Wednesday, February 19 at 10:00 AM and is specially designed for school field trips.
The play begins as Peter leads Wendy and her brothers, Michael and John, off to Neverland. He wants Wendy to be a mother for his ragtag band of Lost Boys. However, there is danger lurking as Captain Hook promises to make Peter and his youthful band walk the plank! Add in a hungry crocodile and the helpful Tiger Lily and there plenty of action and fun for audiences of all ages.
Peter Pan is presented by Family Stages which specializes in two actor version of classic stories. Company founder Steve Seyfried will be joined by Becki Zatarsky to bring the story to life. Costumes fly fast and furiously as all the characters take their turns on stage in this fast-pace, one hour production.
