Spring Musicals

Manor Spring Musical

Directed by

Janelly Calmell

Classic Broadway musical that will whisk you away to a place where no one ever grows up.

A musical that is loved by most and a family favorite, Peter Pan is a musical about a boy who never grows up. He and his fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.

Based on J.M. Barrie's classic tale with an unforgettable score by Morris "Moose" Charlap and Jule Styne. Lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green featuring songs, "I'm Flying," "I've Gotta Crow," "I Won't Grow Up" and "Never Never Land," Peter Pan Jr. will provide a fun musical experience for all.
