The Alden in McLean Welcomes Canada’s DuffleBag Theatre “Peter Pan”
McLean, Va.—The Alden in McLean will begin the 2017-2018 McLean Kids Performance Series with a single performance by DuffleBag Theatre of Ontario, Canada’s “Peter Pan.” The performance will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Old Firehouse Center, which is located at 1440 Chain Bridge Rd. Tickets are $15, $10 for MCC tax district residents.
The story of “Peter Pan” is well-known. Wendy Darling is sad to learn that she’s growing too old to stay in the nursery and must move to the adult wing of the house. But when an adventurous young boy offers to fly her to Neverland where she can stay young forever, Wendy is catapulted into an adventure filled with magic pixies, charming pirates and talking trees. As Peter Pan battles his arch-nemesis Captain Hook in DuffleBag Theatre’s fun version of J.M. Barrie’s beloved classic, even grown-ups will feel like kids again.
Since 1992, The “Nearly World-Famous” DuffleBag Theatre has traveled the globe with its original adaptations of fairy tales and classic stories. With wit and humor for all ages, DuffleBag creates theatrical magic by inviting up audience members to be the stars of the show! The result is an exciting, interactive and unique experience for all. It’s no wonder DuffleBag performs over 600 shows annually, at theatres, schools and festivals across North America.
