A little high-flying mischief maker has been skirting out of Neverland and peeping into the Darling family windows. The Duluth Playhouse’s production of “Peter Pan or the Boy Who Would Not Grow Up” stars the perma-boy character as he befriends the Darling kids — especially Wendy — and takes them on adventures that include mermaids and pirates and a crocodile.
The crew runs with The Lost Boys and Tinker Bell.
John Caird and Trevor Nunn adapted the story by J.M. Barrie, doubling back and using some of the writer’s original text.
The Playhouse’s production includes an original score — though it’s not a musical — by Blake Thomas that includes a mix of traditional instruments, technology and found objects.
