Neverland has never been so outrageously hip. With “Peter Pan” wordlessly filling the movie screen, a hi-decibel show takes center stage. Blending original music, dance and techie wizardry, Vox Lumiere creates a thrilling retelling of this beloved piece of classic cinema. And the pairing of theatrical rock concert and silent film needs no fairy dust to delight. “Absolutely riveting!” writes The Los Angeles Times.
Show starts at 7:30 p.m.
The Lost Boys are a punk band, the Pirates sing a pretty mean four-part harmony (when they’re not dancing the “monkey” or sewing some snazzy new outfits), the Fairy Squadron has got some fierce moves, the Wing Commander is an awesome rapper and Tinkerbell, well Tinkerbell can definitely kick your butt, (but is just a wee bit conflicted about needing approval from her emotionally unavailable “boyfriend” Pete.)
Yeah, this ain’t your Momma’s Neverland.
We’re up in the attic, and there’s all sorts of cool stuff for us to use in the show. (Yeah, Hook’s hook might look like a Big Gulp cup with an aluminum foil hook, but I wouldn’t mess with him if I were you.)
It’s the second star to the right and straight on ’til morning (or until whenever Mom calls us for dinner). Come on, let’s play!

Park City Performing Arts Foundation presents
Vox Lumiere – Peter Pan
March 23, 2013
PARK CITY, UT – Neverland has never been so outrageously hip. Vox Lumiere’s hi-decibel show brings together original, rockin’ live music, dance and classic, silent film. As the 1924 film, “Peter Pan,” fills the screen, a theatrical rock concert takes center stage. Vox Lumiere – Peter Pan lets imaginations soar at the Eccles Center on Saturday, March 23. The magic begins at 7:30 p.m.
Created by Kevin Saunders Hayes (a classically trained musician/product of London’s rock scene/composer), Vox Lumiere needs no fairy dust to sparkle on stage. The company takes gentle liberties with the “Peter Pan” tale, allowing twists and interpretation as on-stage performers sing the feelings of the silent characters on screen. From Tinkerbell (a tough little fairy) and Captain Hook to The Lost Boys and a hilarious, belching croc, the live performers take on the classic roles with riveting talent. And so, a delightful classic transforms into a cutting-edge, magical journey.
Vox Lumiere has toured the world with several shows and been nominated for multiple Grammy awards. The cast features powerful vocalists and musicians, remarkable entertainers, a thoroughly original score, gorgeous technical wizardry, which blend to create a spellbinding, multi-disciplined showcase of the arts.
The Los Angeles Times calls Vox Lumiere “Absolutely riveting!” and The Dallas Morning News describes the show as “A multidimensional blast of visual and auditory splendor!”
“This show is unlike anything that’s ever graced our stage. It’s film. It’s Grammy-caliber rock concert. It’s technically incredible. It’s the kind of show that thoroughly entertains while allowing clever and delightful escape,” says PCPAF executive director Teri Orr. “We’re all a little like Peter Pan in Park City. I couldn’t dream up a better way to celebrate the child – that doesn’t really want to grow up – in each of us.”
In addition to the March 23 main stage show, Vox Lumiere is slated to participate in PCPAF’s Student Outreach Program.
Park City Performing Arts Foundation presents Vox Lumiere – Peter Pan on Saturday, March 23 at The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center for the Performing Arts (1750 Kearns Blvd., Park City). Show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $20 to $67 (20-percent discount for seniors, children ages 16 and under are half price; $5 seats are available in the Copper Section for Summit County students in K-12).
Tickets and information are available at The Eccles Center box office, 435-655-3114 or www.ecclescenter.org.
