Audiences will get up close and personal with a crocodile that has set its sights on a certain pirate captain in Lionheart Theatre Company's adaptation of "Peter Pan."
Having already gotten a taste of Captain Hook, the croc will chase the Jolly Roger's villainous captain out into the audience during the musical production, which has been adapted specifically with children in mind. The 60-minute show is packed with action and adventure involving all the well-known characters from J. M. Barrie's story about a boy who wouldn't grow up.
"Lots of music, lots of activity. It's just constant fun for 60 minutes," said Tanya Carroll, artistic director for Lionheart and the show's producer.
For 17-year-old Allie Carroll, who is directing the show, the story of Peter Pan was one of her favorites as a child.
"It's a classic tale of never wanting to grow up," she said. "I think everybody wants to be a little kid and have that kid inside of them."
Cookies and punch will be served after each performance and cast members will greet the audience and sign autographs.
Admission to the show is $7 per person with $2 going to the Norcross Cooperative Ministry to purchase school supplies for children whose families are served by the nonprofit. Those who bring a new school supply to the show will be admitted for $5.
