Dallas audiences will experience Neverland in a whole new way with a spectacular innovative stage production of Peter Pan that combines intimate theater-in-the-round, overhead surround CGI projection, actors in dazzling flying sequences forty feet in the air, and whimsical puppets that bring J.M. Barrie’s classic tale to fantastical life. This production takes place in the one-of-a-kind Threesixty Theatre, a state of the art 100 foot high structure that is part tent and part luxurious world-class theatre. Conceived by an award winning creative team, the beloved family tale will capture the imagination of adults and children alike.
The show is performed up in the air, “in the round” and all around, creating a truly unique environmental theatrical experience. The entire interior is lit with over 15,000 square feet of Hi Resolution projection so that both cast and audience are immersed in a virtual Neverland. When Peter and Wendy fly to Neverland, audience members will feel the effect in the pit of their stomachs as they fly with the beloved characters over 200 square miles of virtual London and beyond.
This production premiered in London’s Kensington Gardens, the original home of Peter Pan. Seen by over 750,000 theatre-goers worldwide to date, Peter Pan, The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, was created by Scottish novelist and playwright J.M. Barrie. One night, Peter flies into the London nursery of the Darling children, Wendy, John and Michael, teaches them to fly and leads them to the magical Neverland, “second to the right and straight on till morning,” where they live with Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys and meet the notorious Captain Hook.
Peter Pan is adapted and directed by award winning director Thom Southerland. Choreography and movement creator is internationally acclaimed Gypsy Snider, with original music composed by Benjamin Wallfisch and additional music by Howard Herrick.
By arrangement with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and Samuel French Limited, Peter Pan is produced by Norton Herrick and Charlie Burnell. Norton Herrick, Chairman and CEO of Herrick Entertainment, is a multiple Tony Award winning producer and film producer of Critics Choice Award winner Lone Survivor. “This production,” noted Herrick, “is that rare opportunity to tell a legendary story with equal parts innovation and grandeur. Audiences can sit back and be transported to a magical place and time, and be able to share it with their family.” Charlie Burnell, the London based founder of Threesixty Entertainment and originating producer, said “Threesixty’s intention with Peter Pan has always been to remain faithful to the original story while employing 21st century techniques to tell it. We are delighted to bring this all new production to North America and entertain a whole new audience of 5 to 95 year olds.”
