a new neverland
Book by Melvin Tunstall III, Music by Michael Thurber & Douglas Lyons, Lyrics by Douglas Lyons
based on the novel Peter and Wendy by JM Barrie
featuring choreography by Brittney Griffin, Val "Ms Vee" Ho, Ali Solomon, and Shea Sullivan
Pete(HER)Pan is the classic legend of ‘Peter Pan and Wendy’, but as seen through the eyes of Wendy's precocious and daring daughter Jane. Inspired by her Mother's stories of non-stop adventures in Neverland, Jane wants to find an adventure of her own. Pete(HER)Pan reminds the kid in all of us that anyone can be a hero.
How it works
You film a short section of Pete(HER) Pan. Other folks in the theater community do the same.
You send them to us and we edit them into an epic, DIY Musical from Home.
Most of the show is cast but get in touch ASAP if you want to play!

SCRIPT and DEMOS
(sheet music and tracks will come via email)
We do indeed have authority to produce this one. Thanks to Melvin, Douglas, and Michael for the opportunity to create this way.
Please be smart and safe! Don't gather everyone you know in a big room, coughing and breathing on each other, just to do this. If you're not feeling well, take care of yourself and don't go near other people. (We're not medical professionals)
We will do our darnedest to use as much of what you create as possible. We have no idea what kind of response we're gonna get.
If we have a lot of one section and not much of another, we may ask you to take on something else.
BE SAFE AND HAVE FUN!!!
