Texas High School’s Tiger Theatre Company brings to Texarkana on of Broadway’s timeless classic musicals that will whisk you away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up.
Based on J.M. Barrie’s masterpiece, “Peter Pan,” audiences, young and old, will be delighted with tales of dastardly pirates, adventurous Lost Boys, fierce Indians and a boy with a mischievous sidekick.
