Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : January 7th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 8, 2009 23 Neverland's at the Armory THE story of the little boy who never grew up -- Peter Pan --is opening at the Armory Theatre, Sydney Olympic Park this week. The story begins in the nursery of the Darling home where the three children are getting ready for bed when Peter Pan and Tinkerbell appear at the window. This is the beginning of a huge adventure for the Darling children who learn to fly, visit Neverland and are even captured by the pirate Captain Cook. Luckily Peter Pan flies to the rescue and saves them from having to walk the plank. This production by the Marian Street Theatre for Young People is suitable for 3-12 year olds and blends storytelling with original music and puppetry. It is on at the Armory Theatre, Newington Armory from January 8 to 24. Tickets cost $16 for children, $20 for adults or $60 for a family of four.
