Based on the classic Disney animated film, Wendy and her two brothers are amazed when a magical boy named Peter Pan flies into their bedroom, supposedly in pursuit of his rebellious shadow. He and his fairy friend, Tinkerbell, come from a far-off place called Neverland, where children stay perpetually young. Enchanted, the kids follow him back. But when Pan’s nemesis, the pirate Captain Hook, causes trouble, the kids begin to miss their old life.
Directors: Ron & Sara Williams

Peter Pan is the boy who would never grow up. He is a hotheaded, adventurous adolescent who is also very caring. A boy or a girl can play the role.
Tinker Bell is Peter Pan’s fairy. She is full-size and able to speak English when talking to the audience, but is two inches tall and only able to speak through bells when in scenes.
The Fairies are Tinker Bell’s friends and have been roped into telling the story with her. Silvermist is sweet and supportive. Rosetta has southern charm. Fawn is spunky and fun. Iridessa is the most cautious and sensible. And Vidia can’t believe she has to put up with being in someone else’s story.
Wendy is the eldest Darling child, a gifted storyteller with a maternal sensibility.
John is the middle Darling child who acts quite mature for his age. He is a smart, analytic thinker who is a natural leader.
Michael is the youngest Darling child, baby brother to Wendy and John. He is sensitive and playful
Mr. Darling is the Darling children’s father. He is a moody, pompous man who actually has an extremely caring heart underneath it all.
Mrs. Darling is the Wendy, John and Michael’s mother. She is wise and maternal, the calming opposite to Mr. Darling’s fussing.
Nana is the Darling children’s nursemaid and a dog. She cannot speak, but takes very good care of Wendy, John and Michael.
Captain Hook is a dangerous villain who seeks revenge on Peter Pan for the loss of his hand. He is pompous, gaudy and without a conscience.
Smee is Captain Hook’s right-hand man, and the show’s comic relief.
The Pirates are Captain Hook’s roughhouse gang of henchmen. They are mean and gruff characters that do Captain Hook’s bidding. They include Jukes, Starkey, Noodler, Skylights, Cookson and Murphy.
The Crocodile ate Captain Hook’s hand, and is now following him to eat the rest of him. This is a non-speaking role.
The Lost Boys
The Lost Boys are Peter Pan’s right hand boys. They are fellow orphans like Peter Pan, and together form his gang of faithful friends in Never Land. They include Cubby, Skunk, Foxy, Hop and the Raccoon Twins.
Chief Tiger Bamboo
Chief Tiger Bamboo is the leader of the native Indian population on Never Land.
Tiger Lily is the Indian Chief’s daughter. She is a strong and proud young woman.
The Indians are the native inhabitants in Never Land. They include Brave Pine, Brave Oak and Brave Shrub.
