Port Angeles Community Players presents ‘Peter Pan and Wendy’

PORT ANGELES — At the second star to the right, you’ll find Neverland, the home of Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. But to get there, you have to go to the Port Angeles Community Players production of “Peter Pan and Wendy,” which opens tonight.

The play runs tonight (Feb. 21), plus Feb. 22, Feb. 25, Feb. 28, Feb. 29, March 3, March 6 and March 7 at 7:30 p.m., and Feb. 23, March 1 and March 8 at 2 p.m. at the Port Angeles Community Playhouse, 1235 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

Tickets are $15 adults and $8 for children. On Tuesdays, tickets are $8 at the door. They are available at Brocante Antique Mall, 105 W. First St., or online at www.pacommunityplayers.org.

The play, adapted by Doug Rand, is faithful to the original novel by J.M. Barrie, with its loopy fun and dark corners, said director Barbara Frederick.

“When the carefree and careless Peter Pan flies into the nursery of the Darling home, Wendy follows her instincts for maternity and adventure, bringing her little brothers along to the magical Neverland to take care of the motherless Lost Boys,” Frederick said in a press release.

“Soon the Darling children are swept into Peter’s battle with Captain Hook and his fearsome pirate crew. With so much excitement why would they ever want to go home?”
