Underneath a Magical Moon

by Mike Kenny

A reimagining of Peter Pan as told by Wendy Darling

Through her open window Wendy Darling gazes out at the night sky dreaming of blue lagoons, magical moons and the stories that she can tell.

But tonight,   like no other, has magic in the air ……

tutti frutti and York Theatre Royal teamed up with leading playwright Mike Kenny to re-imagine the enchanting story of Peter Pan as told by Wendy.

Wendy Darling who is the owner of stories,  mother to the  lost boys, a believer in fairies, and a young girl with her feet firmly on the ground.

Come with us as we invite you to fly into a fantastical world of adventure, where time stands still, and the impossible seems possible and if you close your eyes and believe, then you really can make anything happen.

A sparkling new production with exquisite music, enthralling movement and a sprinkle of tutti frutti magic for children 3+ and their families to enjoy.

tutti frutti enraptures its young audience with a wonderful and warm piece of theatre. The Stage
