The National Theatre of London continues its season with its acclaimed production of “Peter Pan” showing in Sedona on Sunday, June 18, at 3 p.m. The Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere at its Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
All children — except one — grow up.
Captured live at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of J.M. Barrie’s much-loved tale screens in cinemas around the world.
When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.
A delight for children and adults alike, Sally Cookson directs this inventive production, a co-production with Bristol Old Vic theatre.
The production is true to Barrie’s story, filled with all of his famous characters with some surprise new twists. And there is plenty of flying and inventive staging.
