It will be a magical moment when Peter, Wendy, John and Michael go on an adventure to Never Land as they literally fly across the stage at the Colonial Theatre. This classic tale of pirates, fairies, mermaids and lost boys, filled with beloved songs such as “Never Never Land,” “I Won’t Grow Up,” and “I’m Flying,” will have audiences of all ages believing in magic. This production marks the first time actors have been flown through the Colonial Theatre. BTG hired Hall Associates Flying Effects, a division of Nunnally Enterprises, Inc. to create flying stunts for the principal actors: Peter, Wendy, John and Michael. Peter will be flown over head, across the audience and onto the stage in every performance. Wendy, John, and Michael will also fly in the Colonial Theatre all with the help of specially trained technicians.
