QUEENSLAND BALLET // PETER PAN
Wednesday October 25 thru to Saturday November 4 // QPAC, Playhouse, Cnr Grey & Melbourne St’s, South Bank

Take the hand of Peter Pan and come on a journey to the fabled Neverland… Wendy and her two brothers literally fly into the adventure of a lifetime when Peter Pan leads them to a fantastical imaginary world of fairies, mermaids, pirates, and one very large crocodile. With swashbuckling swordfights, over-sized puppets and breathtaking flying sequences, Trey McIntyre’s Peter Pan uses a brilliant mix of dance and theatre to tell the tale of the boy who never grew up. Told from a child’s perspective, this imaginative ballet re-interprets J M Barrie’s famous story with wit, verve and a distinctly modern spirit. Peter Pan may not have grown up, but his story has.
