Location: Uptown Theater, 120 E Main St. 

Peter Pan takes Wendy and her siblings to Neverland. There, Peter is plagued by the pirate Hook, who is himself plagued by the crocodile who bit off his hand. In the end, Wendy, Peter, and the Lost Boys escape Hook’s clutches.

Peter Pan flies into Wendy Darling’s room and convinces her and her siblings to come to Neverland with him. Jealous, the fairy Tinker Bell tries to sabotage them, but is found out and temporarily banished for her efforts.

In Neverland, Wendy and Peter live with the Lost Boys, who are constantly under attack from the pirate, Captain James Hook. When Hook captures Peter’s friends, he seeks revenge on the pirate and drives him to jump off his ship into the mouth of a crocodile.

Wendy and her brothers return to the real world, where their family adopts the Lost Boys. Peter, unwilling to grow up, remains in Neverland, watching sadly as Wendy ages and loses the ability to fly.
