Peter Pan & Wendy will appear onstage this fall as part of the SDSU's Theatre, Television and Film season of plays. Professor Joseph Thomas, the director of SDSU's National Center for the Study of Children's Literature is helping to organize a pre-show discussion about J. M. Barrie's play and novel in collaboration with production director Margaret Larlham, dramaturgs Shelley Orr, Erica Paulson, and Jamie Gillcrist, and members of the ChildLit Graduate Student Association on Thursday Nov 29 from 6:30 - 7:00 pm.
Peter Pan & Wendy is a bold, imaginative retelling of the magical tale about a boy who never grows up, and his fantastical adventures with Wendy, her brothers and the Lost Boys in Neverland despite the attempts of the vengeful Captain Hook and his pirates to thwart their plans and hasten their demise. Fairies, pirates and mermaids sing and dance to music provided by a live band - “Tiger Lily and the Brave Ones”. Grassroots magic and puppeteers play out onstage as a love letter to the original story and to the creative theatrical process.
