Bold, budding scientist Wendy Darling dreams of earning a Nobel Prize. When Peter Pan arrives at her bedroom window, she takes a leap and leaves finishing school behind, chasing adventure among the stars. Facing down fairies, mermaids, and the dastardly Captain Hook, Wendy, Peter, and their friends discover the power of standing up together for what’s right. J.M. Barrie’s classic Peter Pan is reimagined for a new generation of theatregoers by American Theatre’s Most Produced Playwright of 2019 Lauren Gunderson (Silent Sky, Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley). With “brilliant theatrical flair” (American Theatre), STC Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul (Camelot) directs this beloved tale of adventure and wonder, sure to delight adults and children alike this holiday season.

Featuring STC Affiliated Artists Derek Smith as Mr. Darling/Captain Hook, Tom Story as Smee, and Gregory Wooddell as Starkey.

    Bailey was rescued by Bill Berloni in 2017 as an energetic teenager. After training, he toured the country for a year as the understudy in Finding Neverland for Porthos, the dog that inspired J.M. Barrie to write the role of Nana. In the fall of 2018, he alternated in the role until it was decided that he should be the understudy in Because of Winn Dixie at The Goodspeed Opera House. He has also appeared as Schnoodle’s brother Floodle in Elmo’s World on Sesame Street. He is excited to create a role of his own.
