Step Into the Mind of Playwright J.M. Barrie During a Performance of Finding Neverland

The F.M. Kirby Center has something magical in the air! Join them on Monday, March 9th at 7:00 PM for the mesmerizing production of Finding Neverland. The winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan.

Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. Delighted by the boys’ hilarious escapades, Barrie conjures the magical world of Neverland and writes a play unlike any the high-society theatergoers have seen.

With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. It’s a tremendous risk, but as Barrie himself has discovered, when you believe, you can fly. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event.

Tony-winner Diane Paulus directs this innovative musical featuring an original score by noted composer Gary Barlow and Grammy winner Eliot Kennedy, with a book by celebrated playwright James Graham and choreography by three-time Emmy winner Mia Michaels. Packed with mesmerizing visuals, irresistible songs and plenty of laughs, Finding Neverland is a timeless story about the power of imagination… and spectacular proof that you never really have to grow up.

Finding Neverland will play at F.M. Kirby Center on Monday, March 9th. This musical is recommended for ages 7 and older. Tickets start at $39.50 and are available at www.kirbycenter.org. For additional information, please contact F.M. Kirby Center by calling (570) 829-1100.
