Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story, a theatrical production for all ages is presented by RWS in association with Belgium’s Music Hall. It tells the enchanting story of Peter Pan, a mischievous boy, with the ability to fly and refuses to grow up. One night, he visits Wendy, John, and Michael Darling in their London nursery and takes them on an unforgettable flight where the Lost Boys, Indians, mermaids and pirates await them at Neverland. In adventures beyond their wildest imaginations, the villainous Captain Hook hatches an evil scheme that crescendos to a dramatic swordfight with Peter.
Since its first show in 2012, Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story has played to audiences in Belgium, Dubai, Netherlands and the United Kingdom (UK). The Stage, UK, described the show as “A sensational stage spectacular that is perfect for families.” Nottingham Post, UK, raved, “Plenty to keep the audience entertained”.
