Neverland was our destination last Saturday as I journeyed with my “little lost boys” to the Center for Puppetry Arts to see the beloved childhood tale of Peter Pan.
A twist on the classic children’s story, the Peter Pan puppet show featured familiar characters such as the Darling children, Tinker Bell, Captain Hook, The Lost Boys, and playful Peter Pan.
The show is performed in black-light, so for little ones who may be a bit timid of the dark, consider sitting near the middle/rear of the theater so the characters appear smaller and in case you need to dash for the exit.
After the show, we went upstairs to the “Create-A-Puppet Workshop.” The featured puppet craft was the crocodile from the story. My boys love making the craft and pretending to bring it to life behind the kid-sized puppet theater curtain. (It also makes for a smooth ride home with our new puppet to play with!)
A cherry on top for this workshop was the black-light room, which made the crocodiles glow green!
Peter Pan flies to the Center for Puppetry Arts, September 25 – October 28. I recommend visiting the Center for Puppetry Arts because it is fun and educational for children, and the staff make the guest experience enjoyable for the entire family with their service and understanding of their little guests’ needs!
