Take Flight with Wendy and the Lost Boys in Bad Hats Theatre'Peter Pan!

Pirates. Lost Boys. A ticking crocodile. And a child who never wants to grow up. With live folk and jazz music, this exuberant adaptation of J.M. Barrie's classic tale reimagines Peter Pan for the new millennium. This magical story soars to new heights – without the use of wires. Infused with spirited play, music, joy, and a pinch of fairy dust- Peter Pan promises a rollicking good time! The Toronto production swept the Dora TYA Awards in 2018.

"I dare you to watch it and not want to leap up and join in.” – The Globe and Mail
