"Finding Neverland" O'Donnell Center
A musical adaptation of the Academy Award®-winning film, “Finding Neverland” tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan.
Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatregoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes a monumental leap and leaves his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs to life in a show NPR calls “far and away the best musical of the year!”
This marks the first time a Broadway show has been included as part of the Performing Arts Series.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to bring this caliber of show to our community,” said Debbie Vavra, Dean of the Division of Visual/Performing Arts and Kinesiology. “This show and the entire Series would not be possible without the support of Dr. Mary Hensley, Chancellor of the Blinn College District, and the hard work of our Theatre Arts students, who work as crew members for the events.
“The Series allows us to enhance the academic classroom with real-life theatre experience that can build the students’ portfolio.”
