Children's Theatre of Charleston is visiting Neverland once again by staging the musical, "Peter Pan, Jr."

Based on J,M, Barrie's classic story of the boy who never grew up, and carried along by Morris Charlap and Jule Styne's score, the story follows the adventures of Wendy Darling and her two brothers as they travel with Peter to Neverland to face pirates, play with the lost boys and eventually learn the value of home.

"You can tell there's a lot of love in the show itself," Bailey Pittman (Peter Pan) said. "So, it really brings it together and tells a wonderful story."

CTOC last performed a "Peter Pan" story in 2012, but this version is based upon the Tony Award-winning musical which has delighted audiences for more than 60 years adapted for young performers.

"There's a lot of good music in it and you learn a lot," Tim Walker (Captain Hook) said. "You know, about the story and there's a lot of morals in it. Just like Captain Hook for example, jealousy gets the best of us sometimes. And it shows how dangerous that can be and how you shouldn't let that happen."

Joining Peter and the Darling family is Tinkerbell, Captain Hook...and yes...even the crocodile as the cast sings memorable numbers including "I'm Flying," I Won't Grow Up" and "Never Never Land."
