The Academy of Children’s Theatre presented Peter Pan Jr. January 2nd, 3rd, and 4th at the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse in Shreveport, LA.
Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie's enchanting play, Disney's Peter Pan JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn't grow up... with no flying required! The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs and a story featuring one rousing adventure after another.
Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Neverland. Their journey introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook! It’s Peter to the rescue when Wendy is taken captive by the dreaded captain, who has his own sinister plans in mind for our hero.
Disney's Peter Pan JR. is a magical story with countless opportunities for clever staging and design, and large ensemble numbers featuring cliques of classic characters.
The production starred Emily Martinson as Peter Pan alongside Mike Martindale as the notorious Captain Hook! (And who could forget the adorable Kate Davis as the spunky pixie, Tinkerbell!!!)
