The following was sent to us by Amy Poe:

McLean High School presents The Terrible Tragedy of Peter Pan on December 2-4 at 7:30 with a Saturday matinee at 2:00.  There will be a red-carpet event on December 2 at 6:00 where cast members will be available for interviews and photographs.  The playwright, Phillip Klapperich, will be flying in from Chicago to see this landmark production.  Ticket prices are $10.00 and can be purchased at the door.  Don't miss this opportunity to see McLean Theatre's first performance from new director Amy Poe.

The critically acclaimed play was first performed in July of 2002 at the House Theatre in Chicago.  The play centers on the internal struggles of the classic Peter Pan character as he faces the terrifying reality of becoming an adult. While the play stays true to the original work by J.M. Barrie, Klapperich’s script adds and alters various characters. The Doctor serves as a narrator to take the audience on in-depth adventure through Peter’s psyche.  Classic characters such as Tinker Bell, Hook, and Wendy appear in a drastically different and more modern light.  This play plunges into some of the more sinister themes often skirted over in traditional portrayals of this beloved story.  This is Neverland like you’ve never seen it before.
