“Finding Neverland” at Broadway Palm Dinner Theater in Fort Myers, Now through November 16th
Based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name, Finding Neverland tells the incredible true story behind the creation of one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration for his next work until he meets a beautiful widowed mother and her four young sons. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a lot of faith and a little bit of pixie dust, Barrie shares his journey to Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of youth lasts forever. Buy your tickets
