‘Peter Pan the Musical’ stays true to original British script

Production by Surrey Youth Theatre Company features cast of 17

For their 21st season of family theatre, the Surrey Youth Theatre Company presents Peter Pan the Musical March 9 to 11 at the Surrey Arts Centre Studio Theatre.

The musical by Piers Chater-Robinson, based on the novel by J.M. Barrie, takes audiences on the Darlings’ family adventures in The Never Land.

Witness heroism as Peter defeats the villainous Captain Hook; be entertained by fumbling Pirates; learn why Peter does not want to grow up; and cry and cheer with the Lost Boys counting on Peter and Wendy to lead them in life.

Directed by company founder Susan Pendleton, the 17 member cast, ages 10 to 15, offer up a captivating and delightful rendition of this popular novel. Staying away from the Disney and Broadway interpretations comes this cleverly written true to form British script. The songs are catchy, engaging and memorable.

Pendleton has her MA degree in educational theatre from New York University and continues her love of children’s theatre through the Surrey Youth Theatre Company.
