Wendy, The Peter Pan Musical

No longer available

Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre, Aotea Centre


Honouring the original text of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, but reimagined for a 21st Century audience, Wendy takes centre stage as she charts a path in Neverland from youthful innocence to changing the world alongside the adored characters of Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Captain Hook and the Lost Children.

Featuring 20 original songs, the revival of forgotten Barrie characters including the Never Bird and the Mermaid, this is a colourful and exhilarating production featuring original choreography and flying, colourful costumes, mechanical creatures, along with stunning lighting and digital effects.

With a cast of over 200 talented young performers from all across the Auckland region, this will be a spectacular performance not to be missed.

Writers-composers Jonathan Alver and James Doy have crafted an incredible song list reflecting the eccentric nature of J.M. Barrie's writing whilst bringing it alive for a new generation. This feel-good musical is fantastic entertainment for the whole family.
