Peter Pan

April 6-8, 2018

A visually stunning, truly soaring Ballet Memphis original.

Steven McMahon’s fantastically fresh staging of Peter Pan is complemented by the scenic talents of Tony Award-winner Beowulf Boritt, gravity-defying ZFX Flying Effects, award-winning costume designer Anne Armit, and a professional cast of dancers that will leave you breathless, as well as wanting to fly. The sophisticated flying system allows five characters to soar at once, “rising, falling and flying across the stage with great precision.” And colorfully illuminated sets—from a Victorian bedroom to lush forests to a pirate ship—paired with a score of composers hand-picked by McMahon transform The Orpheum into the perfect Neverland.

"The sumptuous production of 'Peter Pan' by Ballet Memphis is a beautiful experience on many levels. The dance, of course, is the essence of it, and the company again shows its skill. Steven McMahon’s original choreography is smart, with a childlike exuberance that fits the story and a varied contemporary feel."
