The Overlook Theatre Company has been hard at work putting the final touches on “Peter Pan: The High-Flying Musical Adventure,” which will take the stage June 21- 24 at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts.

Classic Broadway tunes will fill the theatre, and there will be enough pixie dust to feed all child-like imaginations as the 78- member cast present the story of Peter Pan, played by Samuel Crabtree, a mischievous boy who can fly and never ages. The play follows Peter Pan as he spends his time adventuring on the island of Neverland as the leader of the Lost Boys and encountering mermaids, Indians, and Captain Hook and his band of pirates.
