'Peter Pan' Presented by the DuffleBag Theatre Company

Appropriate for ages 3 to 10, The DuffleBag Theatre Company will present Peter Pan on February 18, 2019 at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre. Ticket information follows.

Wendy Darling is sad to learn that she’s growing too old to stay in the nursery any longer, and must move to the adult wing of the house. But when an adventurous young boy offers to fly her to Neverland where she can stay young forever, Wendy is catapulted into an adventure filled with magic pixies, charming pirates, and talking trees! As Peter Pan battles his arch-nemesis Captain Hook in DuffleBag Theatre’s fun version of J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic, even grown-ups will feel like kids again!
