Just think of happy things and come fly away to Neverland with GMDT’s take on Peter Pan, the classic story by J.M. Barrie. Join Tinkerbell, Peter and the Darling Children on their magical journey where adventure lurks around every corner—but beware, Captain Hook and his motley crew of pirates are on the prowl for revenge. This ballet will be sure to delight audiences of all ages with the timeless tale of the boy who never grew up.
“Peter Pan … brings out the inner child in all of us,” said Gray Stoner, associate artistic director for GMDT. “I want the audience to experience that magical feeling no matter their age, and I’m excited to bring this classic filled with so many wonderful characters to life.”
GMDT is comprised of more than 120 students ranging in age from seven years-old to graduating high school seniors who train at Georgia Dance Conservatory (GDC) on the Marietta Square.
