Grab your fairy dust and get ready to fly, because Peter Pan lands at TPAC October 8 – 10. Escape to Neverland with this high-flying magical adventure the whole family will enjoy. Paul Vasterling’s adaptation of this beloved childhood tale features mermaids, an enchanting musical score, swashbuckling pirates, fairies in flight, and all your favorite characters like Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily, and The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up.

In Nashville Ballet’s production of Peter Pan, Mr. Vasterling has taken special care to remove the outdated cultural depictions and racist undertones present in the original text written by author J.M. Barrie, which are in no way representative of Nashville Ballet’s beliefs. Families are encouraged to use this as an opportunity to discuss the history of racism and the progress our society has and has yet to be made.

Paul Vasterling’s Peter Pan promises to inspire a sense of childlike wonder in audience members of all ages with live chamber music scored by Philip Feeney. Adaptation, Choreography, and Flight Choreography by Paul Vasterling with Live Chamber Music arranged by Philip Feeney; Music composed by Claude Debussy, Gabriel Fauré, Maurice Ravel, and Georges Bizet; and Costume Design by Campbell Baird.
