An Atlanta Mom Blogger's Review Of Peter Pan: Now Performing At The Center For Puppetry Arts!

Remember this: 

You can fly. You can fly. You can fly. 

And girls can be brilliant inventors, too. 

With just a dash of Tinker Bell's pixie dust and a little creativity, the Darling children embark on an adventure to Neverland with Peter Pan and his fairy friend at Atlanta's Center For Puppetry Arts. This vibrant performance makes use of blacklight effects and a special screen overlay, bringing the stage to life with brilliant splashes of water, billowing clouds, and beautiful props that help the audience stay immersed in the classic tale from start to finish.

We have attended many performances at Atlanta's Center For Puppetry Arts over the years, but "Peter Pan" felt quite unique in both appearance and dialogue. It was comedic without being over-the-top in words or gestures, and appealed to all ages. 

The whole family will be clap and laugh along with the entertaining dialogue and lovable characters. Each of the puppets is a delight, but my personal favorite was Nana, the Darling children's sweet caretaker. I think Danger was partial to the dainty (and rather spunky) Tinker Bell, a fairy that expresses her frustration by squealing the alphabet: A-B-C-D-E-F-G! 

"Peter Pan" runs from September 22-October 25, 2015, and it is a must-see for Atlanta families. We attended a SOLD OUT performance on Sunday, September 27! Very well deserved, too. If you plan to attend, you may want to consider purchasing your tickets in advance. 

What classic tale would you like to see at Center For Puppetry Arts in the future?
