The Children’s Theater of Cincinnati is gearing up for another amazing season!! My whole family just loves this place so much. We haven’t missed a MainStage production in 5 years. If you are new to the area or haven’t been to the Children’s Theatre yet, this is the season for you.
They are kicking the season off with a production of Peter Pan Jr.!!! ARRGG. We can’t wait. And Bob Herzog from Channel 12 will be playing Captain Hook! He is always completely ridiculous, hilarious and amazing! Don’t miss a show that he’s in. He’s one of our favorites.
In the coming months, they will also be performing Cinderella, Madagascar and Mary Poppins Jr. What a great line up for this season.
The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati presents Peter Pan Jr. October 21-30, 2017 at the Taft Theatre. Based on J.M. Barrie’s enchanting play, Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up.
Peter Pan JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about the adventures of a mischievous boy.
“In Peter Pan Jr. Wendy, Michael and John Darling meet and befriend Peter Pan when the mysterious boy and a fairy named Tinker Bell enter their nursery in search of Peter’s lost shadow. “
Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook. Featuring the iconic songs, “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Never Never Land,” and a rousing book full of magic, warmth and adventure, Peter Pan JR. is the perfect show for the child in all of us.”

TCT’s Sensory Friendly performance of PETER PAN JR. will be held on Monday, October 30 at 9:45 AM. This performance is intended for individuals on the autism spectrum, as well as children (and adults) with other special needs who may benefit. To create a sensory-friendly performance, the show is performed in a welcoming, supportive environment for those with sensory challenges. Slight adjustments to lighting and sound are made and effects such as fog, strobes, and lights that extend into the audience are minimalized. A downloadable Social Narrative (in Word format) is made available on the TCT website one week before the performance. At the theater, TCT provides an area staffed by specialists in the field where patrons can take a break from the performance if necessary, and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has trained staff on hand. For details about how to purchase tickets to this performance, visit www.thechildrenstheatre.com.
All MainStage performances are at the Taft Theatre 5th and Sycamore St. in Downtown Cincinnati.
