Wartburg Players presents 'Peter/Wendy' Nov. 12 & 13issing table ban

“Peter/Wendy” is an adaptation of the story of Peter Pan and pays homage to the darker themes of J. M. Barrie's original story of the boy who never grew up. “Peter/Wendy” strips the familiar story down to its emotional essence. Peter lures Wendy away from her home to join him in Neverland. The pair, joined by Tinkerbell, Tiger Lily and the Lost Boys, face adventures and run-ins with Captain Hook and Smee. The play will mesmerize audiences of all ages. Show dates are Friday, Nov. 12, and Saturday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m. in McCaskey Lyceum. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are sold only at the door: $10 general admission, Wartburg students free with student ID.
