Compiled By: Lana K. Wilson-Combs
The hit Broadway musical Finding Neverland will make its Sacramento premiere as part of the Broadway Sacramento series at Community Center Theater from April 10–15.
Based on the Academy Award-winning Miramax motion picture by David Magee, and the play “The Man Who Was Peter Pan” by Allan Knee, “Finding Neverland” follows the relationship between playwright J.M. Barrie and the family that inspired “Peter Pan,” or “The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up” which is one of the most beloved stories of all time.
"Finding Neverland" is directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus (“Pippin’” “Hair”) with book by Olivier Award-nominee James Graham.
Music and lyrics are by Gary Barlow (“Take That”) and Grammy Award-winner Eliot Kennedy.
The choreography is from Emmy Award-winner Mia Michaels (“So You Think You Can Dance,” Cirque du Soleil’s “Delirium”).
This new musical is packed with mesmerizing visuals, irresistible songs and plenty of laughs and is a timeless story about the power of imagination… and spectacular proof that you never really have to grow up.
The production features scenic design by Tony Award-winner Scott Pask (“Pippin,” “Book of Mormon”), lighting design by Tony Award-winner Kenneth Posner (“The Coast of Utopia,” “Pippin’”), costume design by Suttirat Larlarb (“Of Mice and Men”) and sound design by Tony Award-nominee Jonathan Deans (“Pippin,’” “La Cage aux Folles”).
Hair and make-up design is by Richard Mawbey, projection design from Jon Driscoll, music supervision by Fred Lassen, musical direction by Ryan Cantwell and casting by Stewart/Whitley.
“Finding Neverland” is Produced by NETworks Presentations.
