This lighthearted show swept the audience off their feet and into the adventure-filled life of Molly (Kourtney Bell), a young girl who is on a secret mission with her father (David Newman) to destroy what is called “starstuff”.  On Molly’s ship, The Never Land, she comes across three orphans, one of which is unnamed (Brooks Inciardi), and immediately befriends them.  Pirates, island natives, a crocodile, and mayhem are all prevelant throughout the journey.  The story of Peter Pan magically unfolds before your eyes in this easy-to-love show.
