About the Show:

Taking its cue from JM Barrie's beloved classic story about a boy who refuses to grow up, "A Christmas Peter Pan" begins on Christmas Eve when Tinker Bell summons Wendy, Michael and John to help her save Peter Pan and Santa Claus from Captain Hook and his Pirates. Santa Claus has been frozen in the North Pole and can't deliver the presents on Christmas! But with some help from the children and the audience, Peter Pan escapes Captain Hook's clutches and leads Tinkerbell and the children, along with Snow Fairies, Christmas Elves and Santa's Lost Toys, on an adventure through the North Pole and home again just in time for Christmas morning! Clever lyrics are set to familiar Christmas Carols and everyone, including the audience, gets to join in the fun.

About the Show:

Richard Sherman roams restlessly around his empty apartment, bemoaning the fact that his wife of seven years, and their son, have just walked out on him. Then, without warning, a gigantic flower pot tumbles down from an overhead balcony, nearly putting him permanently out of his misery. The jarring event has a strange effect on Richard. He now sees his marriage as wasted time and feels it necessary to exercise his libido as quickly as possible. Suddenly reborn, he invites the young woman who lives on the floor above down for an evening of temptation. The night doesn't quite go the way he thought it would, as morality and guilt sneak into his head. In his conscience—literally following him about the apartment—a soul-struggle of heroic and hilarious proportions ensues.
