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.
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 Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!
The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs, such as “Following the Leader,” “You Can Fly,” “The Second Star to the Right”, “Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me” and many more.
Join Tinkerbell and Peter Pan as they take you on this magical journey filled with fairy dust, excitement and a talented local cast from Toowoomba Choral Society Youth Choir. Sure to please young and old and everyone in between.
