The Sparks World Famous Circus had finally arrived! It rolled into the muddy humdrum town of Erwin in East Tennessee via the railroad carrying all the trappings of the spectacular—a Ring Master, a Ballet Girl, a Strongman, an Elephant on parade—and the town was filled with fervent enthusiasm. But, by turns horrific, the fervor turns in on itself when a tragic death leads to a staggering resolution in 1916 Americana.

Adapted by Rick Elice from the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, introduces us to the young orphan who would become Peter Pan, as well as some dastardly pirates, some lost boys, and a very brave girl named Molly. A dozen actors will portray a hundred characters in sea battles, jungle adventures, and other exciting escapades. It's a wildly theatrical journey into the imagination for kids, grown-ups, and those who will never grow up.
