Playwright Gail Bowen’s adaptation of the classic Peter Pan story will run at the Manitoba Theatre for Young People (MTYP) beginning next week.

The play stars legendary children’s entertainer Fred Penner as Captain Hook, and Dora Award winner Colin Doyle as Peter Pan.

“Peter Pan has been entrancing audiences of all ages for over a century,” said MTYP artistic director Pablo Felices-Luna.

“When you think about it, it makes perfect sense that the tale of the boy who would not grow up speaks to all of us, regardless of how old we are. First we fall in love with the youthful exuberance of Peter’s adventures, and as we grow, we start extracting new meaning from these timeless stories.”

Peter Pan runs November 28 to December 23 on the MTYP Mainstage. Tickets are available online.
