MONTVILLE, NJ - Robert R. Lazar Middle School in Montville, NJ will present PETER PAN JR.  Based on J.M. Barrie's enchanting play -- Peter Pan or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up -- PETER PAN JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about the adventures of a mischievous boy.

Performances will be held on Thursday, March 22 and Friday, March 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Montville Township High School auditorium, 100 Horseneck Road, Montville, NJ. Tickets are only $7 at the door. The exciting production is suitable for all ages.

“PETER PAN JR. is a story which encourages each of us to reconnect with the spirit of youth,” says Drew Cohen, president of Music Theatre International (MTI).  In PETER PAN JR. Wendy, Michael and John Darling meet and befriend Peter Pan when the mysterious boy and a fairy named Tinker Bell enter their nursery in search of Peter’s lost shadow. Peter whisks his new friends away to Neverland, an island with “hardly any space between one adventure and the other.” There, Peter introduces the Darling children to his fellow Lost Boys, children who – like Peter – never grow up. The crew launches into a great adventure where they encounter Brave Girls, led by the incredible Tiger Lily, and Pirates led by the dreaded Captain Hook. Challenges ensue when the Darling children are ensnared in Captain Hook’s sinister plan to seek revenge on Peter.
