Peter Pan tells the classic tale of a young boy who refuses to grow up. On a quest to find stories with which to entertain his young cohorts in Neverland — an island refuge for “Lost Boys” — Peter returns to the real world. J.M. Barrie’s masterful story shines especially brightly with a rich score that includes such beloved songs as “Tender Shepherd,” “Never Never Land” and “Distant Melody.” A delightful musical featuring singing pirates, daring swordfights, and fantastical make-believe, Peter Pan is a story that is filled with magic, delight, and just a fairy dusting of heartbreak.

“The hottest play in Palm Springs…
A must-see”
–Diane Anderson-Minshall, THE ADVOCATE

“ELECTRICITY is shockingly good…
​The show is expertly executed…
Witty, bitchy, at times gritty and moving, the show hits all the right notes, delivering the perfect combination of sweet, sexy, uproarious, and at times, sad.  But like any memorable love story, it all ends up going right to the heart.”

–Winston Gieseke, PALM SPRINGS LIFE

“A rich character-driven delight…
Playful and poignant, the “Electricity” has a charge that extends not just between the characters but well into the audience.”
