This holiday season, take off on a high-flying adventure as the Beck Center for the Arts presents an encore production of Peter Pan, a musical based on the classic play by J.M. Barrie, on the Mackey Main Stage, now through January 3, 2010. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Fridays, 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays. There is a special 7:30 p.m. performance on two Sundays: December 27 and January 3. There will be no performances on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
Peter Pan features such memorable songs as "I Won't Grow Up," "Neverland," and "I've Got to Crow." Audiences will be enthralled when Peter Pan actually takes flight with technical support by ZFX Flying Inc., the same company that provided the special effects for the Broadway revival. During the production, Peter and the Darling children will be lifted into the air with the help of pixie dust...and the folks at ZFX.
