Youth Theatre

Places everyone! The Youth Theatre Program is an all-inclusive educational theatre program for grades K-9. In addition to learning about theatre, we strive to help students build confidence, improve communication and increase skills. Theatre is an experience your child will never forget; it’s a unique group effort that requires everyone’s participation to bring a show to life. We invite you to take the stage with the J Youth Theatre Program!

Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale, Peter Pan is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, the fierce Brave Girls, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.

Featuring the iconic songs, “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Never Never Land,” and a rousing book full of magic, warmth and adventure, Peter Pan Jr. is the perfect show for the child in all of us… who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up. Peter Pan JR. is a dream come true for groups looking to bring magic to their stage and entertain countless families.
