True to J.M. Barrie's original story, the show opens with the Darling children lying in bed when Peter Pan flies in to watch them sleep. His presence alerts Mrs Darling and Peter flees, but leaves his shadow behind in the commotion.

After returning to the Darling house to retrieve his shadow, Peter wakes Wendy, Michael and John and persuades them to join him on a magical flight to the heart of Neverland. The Darling children journey to Neverland island, where Lost Boys, Indians, mermaids and pirates await them in a series of amazing adventures.
