Finding Neverland Asks “When Did You Stop Playing?”

Play episode

As we age, it is only natural to grow in maturity – at least for most of us. Sometimes as we mature, our sense of playfulness fades or can be lost in the madness of work and responsibilities.

Finding Neverland, the theatrical musical based on the Academy Award-winning Miramax motion picture by David Magee, and the play The Man Who Was Peter Pan by Allan Knee, is a timeless story about the power of imagination and begs the question…

When did you stop playing?

J.M. Barrie, played fantastically by Will Ray, is a troubled playwright who has drawn his last straw. Funds for the theater are low, actors are restless and he needs inspiration to make this script a smash hit before this hit smashes his career.

Join Mr. Barrie on this journey as he rediscovers the creativity he once embodied in his younger days through fun-filled scenes at the dinner party or aboard Captain Hook’s ship.

Although the story of Peter Pan is a favorite fairy tale for many children, this play is better suited for adults and pre-teens who can grasp the ideas of motivation and building a chronological story.
