Maryland Ensemble Theatre (MET)’s FUN Company raises the curtain on local youth in Peter Pan, Jr. for the family. Peter Pan, Jr. features a robust cast of beloved ensemble characters; Pirates, Lost Boys, and Brave Girls are the mainstay of this timeless production. Peter Pan, Jr. is adapted for the youth stage and provides a unique experience for each performer to explore and create memorable characters in an ensemble, developing invaluable skills to grow as an actor. The show is adapted from the 1954 Broadway production (not the Disney version), based on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale and features a memorable score by Morris “Moose” Charlap and Jule Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green.
Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, fierce Brave Girls, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook. Featuring the iconic songs (“I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up,” “Never Never Land”) and a rousing story full of magic, warmth, and adventure, Peter Pan, Jr. is the perfect show for the child in all of us who dreams of soaring.
