The Peter Pan Foundation brings fantastic music and magic to the DVC stage Memorial Day weekend, May 23-25, in its annual production of its blockbuster show, Wish Upon A Star. With pirates, princesses, and villains, this show delights all ages.
There are eight performances over the course of the weekend, showcasing the talents of more than 200 performers, ages 7 to adult. The original musical, written and directed by Peter Pan Foundation founder, president, and director Leslie Noel, takes Peter Pan and friends on a whirlwind journey through all the beloved fairytale favorites.
While Wish Upon A Star is a thoroughly entertaining production, it is much more. Proceeds from the show benefit Children’s’ Hospital. Founded in 2007, The Peter Pan Foundation offers the best of all worlds – a place for young hearts to learn to fly though the creative and musical arts and teaching kids the value and benefit of philanthropy and giving back to the community.
“The Peter Pan Foundation was created to help everyone find that power and strength within themselves, to teach them to use it for good, and to inspire them to make a difference,” said Leslie Noel. “Every one has a little Peter Pan inside, a child who never truly grew up but who has the power to teach the world to fly.”
Bring the whole family and come watch all your favorite stories come to life in this musical extravaganza! While tickets can be purchased at the door, nearly every performance last year was sold out, so purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended.
