High Point Community Theatre’s Youth Stage is taking off for Neverland this weekend as they present the Disney classic, "Peter Pan Jr."

A fantastic quest awaits Wendy Darling and her brothers when Peter Pan, the hero of their stories, whisks them away to the magical world of Neverland. After following Peter and his feisty sidekick Tinker Bell past “the second star to the right and straight on till morning,” they explore the island and Peter’s secret hideout with the rambunctious Lost Boys and leap into high-flying battles with swashbuckling pirates and the infamous Captain Hook! 

With music from and inspired by Disney’s animated classic, such as, “Following the Leader,” “You Can Fly,” “The Second Star to the Right” and “Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me.,”  this 60-minute production is designed to entertain all ages.

“Children and adults will love this stage adaption of one of the most beloved Disney animated films of all time," says High Point Community Theatre Vice-President Courtney Lowe. “It’s colorful, fun and face-paced."

According to Director Casey Kern, Tinker Bell even shared some pixie dust with the production team to create some exciting special effects that make it look as if she, Peter and the Darling children are really flying. “I can’t wait to see how the audience reacts to all of the ‘theater magic’ we have put into this show,” Kern says.

Thirty-five Triad area children bring Neverland and all its magic to life. Join Peter, Wendy, John, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook, Smee, Tiger Lily, the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Fairies, Pirates, Indians and one very prompt crocodile for an adventure of a lifetime.

Performances are this Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door. All performances will be at Centennial Station Arts Center in High Point.
