Burning Coal Theatre Company brings schools the beloved PETER PAN by JM Barrie, in a new adaptation devised by the company! A young girl, Wendy, and her siblings are struggling with adolescence. How can they possibly make a place for themselves in this scary, adult world? Or will there never be a land in which the children can group up? Then a young boy named Peter Pan appear to Wendy along with his sidekick, Tink. Will Peter teach the children to fly? Or will he lead them straight into the clutches . . . of Hook! Burning Coal Theatre provides study guides to prepare students for the deep questions posed by the play. Schools may include a “talkback” with the cast and artistic director after the performance, which will run under one hour. Groups of 150 or less may inquire about a field trip to see the performance in Burning Coal's theatre.
