Shoestring Peter Pan 1

Shoestring Theater returns with their hilarious children’s (and adult) puppet show that promises to be “huge , really huge. Really big trust me – because i said so.” Don’t expect a sappy story of childhood adventures, there’s a new world order and Neverland is part of it! Tigerlily’s grown into Tiger Mom and if our Governor has his way the Lost Boys will be heading back down the highway, bye-bye Shifty.
