Check out NC Theatre's Peter Pan @ Marbles Kids Museum!

Peter Pan & The Lost Boys Perform "I Won't Grow Up!"

Marbles Kids Museum was turned into Never-Never-Land this past Saturday! The cast of NC Theatre's Peter Pan flew in to perform for children at the museum. This is your chance to have an upclose and personal encounter with different characters from Peter Pan, including Wendy, Peter, Captain Hook, the lost boys and pirates!

The gang will be at Marbles Kids Museum every Saturday in June before they take up residence in Raleigh Memorial Auditorium. Performances are at 10 am, 11 am and 12 pm and afterwards you have the chance to meet your favorite Peter Pan character, get their autographs, have pictures taken with them, engage in your very own sword fight on the pirate ship and make fun Peter Pan themed crafts!

Below are some pictures from last Saturday's performances:
