Plano Metropolitan Ballet will enchant audiences of all ages with an original ballet rendition of Peter Pan. This endearing tale will follow the escapades of Peter Pan as he visits the Darling Family looking for his lost shadow. Peter Pan invites Wendy and her younger brothers to go with him to Never land where children never grow up. Along the way, they encounter the evil Caption Hook, a band of pirates who are trying to defeat Peter. Lost Boys make the story exciting with the games and contest. Our adventure includes mermaids, a tribe of Indians led by Tiger Lily and a Crocodile that is after Captain Hook. Be watchful for Shooting Stars and Magical Gnomes as you experience the adventure.
