Summary

This two-hour musical special is based on the classic children's story by J.M. Barrie. Peter Pan appears after Wendy, Michael and John are put to bed, and teaches them the secret of flying. Act II opens when they all arrive in Never-Never Land. Captain Hook, Peter's archenemy, appears on the scene and schemes with his gang to kill Peter.

In Act III, the three children become homesick in Never-Never Land and are kidnapped by Captain Hook and his gang. Tinkerbell, Peter's fairy, is poisoned. In Act IV, Peter duels with and defeats Captain Hook and teaches Wendy how to crow. The three children leave for home taking with them the boys who want to grow up.
