The Peter Pan Foundation (PFF) performs its annual original musical, Wish Upon A Star, at Diablo Valley College on Memorial Day weekend. This is a spectacular show, with eight shows throughout the weekend and a cast of more than 200 performers. Princesses, heroes, villains and more make this musical adventure great fun for the whole family. This show is PPF’s biggest event and fundraiser of the year, with proceeds donated to UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland.

 

This year, the foundation is doing something really special. For the afternoon matinees, groups who may not normally have the opportunity to enjoy live musical theater have been invited. For the Saturday matinee, we are offering discounted tickets to senior communities in the area and even taking a few "mini" shows to their facilities for those residents not able to come. For the Sunday 2pm show, we have partnered with hearing-impaired communities and hired an American Sign Language interpreter for the performance. For Monday's matinee, we have partnered, once again, with Easter Seals East Bay for special needs children, children with autism, and their families.

 

The Peter Pan Foundation is so excited to bring music and magic to these under-served communities and offer them an opportunity to enjoy live musical theater. Tickets are available for all eight performances at www.peterpanfoundation.org
