The Magic of J M Barrie’s Peter Pan

by This is Carrie on September 30, 2010

Within 2 seconds of the beginning of the show, Pumpkin & Princess whispered, “Whoa, this is so cool”. How could they not? Performed in a huge, white, state-of-the-art tent, the show uses 360 degree projection to transport both the characters as well as the audience on a magical journey from London to Neverland.  Combine that with the puppetry, the actors taking flight, and the mermaids dancing from the ceiling and you have a show that was so overwhelming to the senses, it got me a little teary.

Even though Pumpkin later explained to Dad that the actors “weren’t really flying, there were strings attached to their sides”, she still couldn’t stop trying to take flight for the hour following the show.  After many failed attempts, she concluded “I think I need more fairy dust.”

I’m making my friend a Peter Pan costume for her 3 month old son! It’s going to be so cute!
