For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday—Apr. 10–May 20

Plan for night of great theater as People’s Light presents For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday. Instead of watching a mischievous boy who can fly, this play features five middle-aged siblings as they crack jokes, argue politics and mourn their recently deceased father over a bottle of Jameson, all while the oldest reminisces about her starring role as Peter Pan at the local children’s theatre 50 years ago.

The play follows the spirit of the original Peter Pan as the siblings travel on one final journey to Neverland and confront their fears of growing up and growing old.

Recommended for ages 12 and up, with a run time of 90 minutes with no intermission. Tickets $30–$53. Check website for times.

People’s Light, 39 Conestoga Rd., Malvern. 610-644-3500.
