David Barrett’s musical adaptation of Peter Pan continues to be very popular in English speaking countries around the world as well as in countries where English is the second language.
This version of Peter Pan is very faithful to Barrie’s original and is modelled on the original Barrie play script with the added advantage that no flying is necessary.
The snappy script is accompanied by a tuneful and memorable musical score, which is supported by instrumental backing tracks for performance. This musical has been performed successfully by a range of age groups ranging from primary schools through to colleges and from youth clubs to church drama societies and amateur theatre companies.
The rights for this play were bequeathed by Barrie to Great Ormond Street Hospital and this bequest was perpetuated permanently by an act of parliament. This means that the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity benefits from each and every performance given in most countries around the globe.
