In this magical tale about the boy who refuses to grow up, Peter Pan and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of Wendy, Michael, and John Darling. With a sprinkling of pixie dust, Peter and his new friends fly out the nursery window and over London to Never-Never Land. The children experience many wonderful and exciting adventures with the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily's Indian tribe, and Peter's arch enemy, the dastardly pirate Captain Hook. Written by

The production was never broadcast annually. It was first telecast live on March 7, 1955 as Producers' Showcase: Peter Pan
(1955) and re-staged live (by popular demand) on January 3, 1956 as Producers' Showcase: Peter Pan
(1956). It was not seen again until this version was videotaped in color and telecast in 1960. Rather than re-broadcast it annually, as CBS began doing with The Wizard of Oz
(1939), NBC repeated the videotaped version in 1963, 1966, and 1973. A long hiatus followed, during which this 1960 production was presumed lost. There was a new production starring Mia Farrow
with a new score, Peter Pan
(1976). Finally, in 1988, the original 1960 videotape of the Mary Martin
version was re-discovered intact, restored and remastered, and telecast in March of 1989 - the production's first TV showing in 16 years. See more
Live theatre productions have different rules than cinema, regarding suspension of disbelief. Most examples of crew or equipment visible, and related imperfect illusions, are not goofs in this genre. See more
Some say that as we grow up, we become different people at different ages, but I don't believe this. I think we remain the same throughout, merely passing in these years from one room, to another, but always in the same house. If we unlock the rooms of the far past, we can look in and see ourselves beginning to become you and me.
