PETER PAN Will Head Out On National Tour in 2024
It’s time to pack your bags for Neverland! An all-new production of the Tony-winning classic Peter Pan will premiere at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in Saint Paul, MN this December before launching a national tour in February 2024 at the Hippodrome in Baltimore, MD.
Premiering first on Broadway in 1954, the musical features an unforgettable score by Morris (Moose) Charlap, lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, additional lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, and additional music by Jule Styne. Emmy Award winner and Broadway favorite Lonny Price will direct this new production which will include an additional book by Larissa FastHorse whose celebrated work The Thanksgiving Play will begin previews on Broadway this March.
“Peter Pan is one of the great treasures of the American Musical Theatre,” said Lonny Price. “The show nurtures and inspires the imagination of its audience and reminds us to keep alive the child within us all.”
“I am thrilled to be part of bringing Peter Pan to life for a new generation,” said Larissa FastHorse. “If you loved this musical before, you will still see the show that enchanted you, while discovering a Peter Pan that everyone can enjoy, without harm, for many years to come.”
The adventure begins when Peter Pan and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinker Bell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night. With a sprinkle of pixie dust and a few happy thoughts, the children are taken on a magical journey they will never forget. Since its premiere on Broadway in the 1950s starring the great Mary Martin, Peter Pan was revived in 1979 starring Sandy Duncan and again in 1990, 1991, and 1998 all starring Cathy Rigby.
Additional tour stops, creative team, and casting will be announced later.
The North American tour of Peter Pan is produced by NETworks Productions.
