peter pan au where the lost boyz and tiger lily’s band are gangs, the pirates are a mafia group, and the darlings are private school students

peter is something of an urban legend in neverland - master skateboarder, stays airborne for seemingly impossible amounts of time, does fantastic acrobatics, and is quick as a hare - if you happened to do a particularly amazing trick somebody might say, ‘dude, you just pulled a peter pan’

tibs isn’t here because i forgot about him since he’s not in the musical, so he’s just mentioned in passing as having grown up and been kicked out of the group by peter

more to come, damn me

so this weekend has been amazing

i saw peter pan TWICE, once from the 7th row orchestra section

i got to see KIM CROSBY perform live which was just the best thing

and when peter flew over the audience, i ACTUALLY cried

then i met michael (who’s actually an adorable little girl!) and tiger lily (who has an insane set of abs) and they were both sweet and adorable

then i met brett barrett who played captain hook, which i was really excited about because i’d seen him in the DVD version of Kiss Me, Kate.  He was so funny and adorable and I couldn’t even handle it. A little boy got scared because of his hook and he did EVERYTHING HE COULD TO MAKE HIM LAUGH AND SMILE. it was beautiful

then i FUCKING MET CATHY RIGBY

AND SHE SPRINKLED FAIRY DUST ON ME

AND SIGNED MY POSTER

AND I TOLD HER THAT ID BEEN WATCHING HER SINCE I CAN REMEMBER

AND SHE SAID THAT IT WAS ADORABLE AND SHE WAS SO HAPPY I COULD FINALLY COME TO NEVERLAND WITH HER.

AND I TOLD HER THAT SINGING “DISTANT MELODY” WITH HER WAS ON MY BUCKET LIST AND SHE SAID THAT IT WAS HER FAVORITE SONG OUT OF ALL THEM IN THE SHOW

then i walked away with my childhood dreams completely realized

thank you peter pan

*and a special thanks to @magicalribbons for inspiring me to make the bows!

in celebration (however much you can celebrate such a thing) of the end of the cathy rigby is peter pan tour. you guys are all absolutely rad, a million hats off to you. you’ve completely changed my distant fondness of peter pan in its entirety, and my idea of it is even better than before.

(i’ve cried over this entire production many times in the last month, which i never thought i would do for any reason at all, so there’s sort of an idea of what it’s done to me)

I have a place where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
It’s not on any chart,
You must find it with your heart.
Never Never Land.

It might be miles beyond the moon,
Or right there where you stand.
Just keep an open mind,
And then suddenly you’ll find
Never Never Land.

You’ll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that’s my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land.

You’ll have a treasure if you stay there,
More precious far than gold.
For once you have found your way there,
You can never, never grow old.

And that’s my home where dreams are born,
And time is never planned.
Just think of lovely things.
And your heart will fly on wings,
Forever in Never Never Land.
