The Warren Consolidated School of Performing Arts presents the classic, childhood story of Peter Pan. The story begins in London, England with the slightly eccentric, but lovable Darling family. Just as the Darling children are nestling down for the night, a mischievous Peter Pan awakens them all. With a little coaching and a lot of faith, Peter teaches the children to fly, and together they journey to the mystical island of Neverland. While in this fantastical realm, Peter and the children encounter mermaids, fairies, the "lost boys' and a dastardly pirate by the name of Captain Hook. Once Hook captures the children, it is up to Peter to save the day, free the captives, and settle things once and for all. This family favorite is brought to the community through the generous sponsorship of Hamilton Chevrolet in Warren. The play will be on May 16 at 7:30 p.m. and May 17 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., at the Warren Consolidated School of Performing Arts @ Sterling Heights High School.
