The Cape Town City Ballet’s Summer Season features …
PETER PAN and TINKERBELL
Join the Cape Town City Ballet and a cast of 50 children on a journey to Neverland, to the Mermaid’s Lagoon and to the Lost Boys’ Tree House and have an adventure on Captain Hook’s ship, the Jolly Roger.
Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up, has once again come to the window of Wendy Darling to listen to her stories. This time he is taking Wendy and her brothers, John and Michael, back with him to Neverland, where every day is an adventure with Red Indians, Mermaids, Stars and Pirates and where children never have to get older.
Come and meet the mischievous Tinkerbell, who travels in her very own air balloon to the Northern Star and beyond.
