Join us for our Family Concert Performances, fully produced with ingenious costumes and sets. For kids and their cool adults!
Come with us to Neverland for magical adventures with Peter Pan, the boy who won’t grow up! Wendy, John, and Michael Darling join Peter as they soar through the night sky to the land of mermaids and fairy dust. Peter’s side-kick, Tinkerbell, adds the extra sparkle on stage. But beware, as Captain Hook and his craggy pirates are up to no good.
In this classic tale by Scottish playwright J.M. Barrie, children discover what friendship and family are really all about. Metropolitan’s Peter Pan is choreographed by Kanji Segawa, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater company member and a noted choreographer, based in New York.
Also on the bill is The Ugly Duckling. Award-winning choreographer, Ashley Walton, brings the Hans Christian Andersen tale of fitting in — and standing out — to life, for a new generation! The Ugly Duckling is shunned by others who feel she is just too awkward to fit in. She tries to make friends with other ducklings, cats, a donkey, and even a fox! Follow her journey as she learns it takes courage to be yourself. Importantly, this piece shines a light on self-acceptance and empathy. The stage will be filled with magic.
