What child doesn’t love to see swashbuckling fun and flying? Enter Peter Pan! The beloved show filled with fun and memorable songs is being presented by Off the Square Theatre company this weekend, wrapping up a two-weekend run of the show.
    Peter Pan (the Broadway version), is the musical adaptation of J. M. Barrie’s 1904 play. The original 1954 Broadway production starred Mary Martin as Peter and she won a Tony Award for her performance. 
    Off the Square’s production marks the very first show to be housed at the brand new Williamson County Performing Arts Center, 112 Everbright Ave. in Franklin.

About the Theatre Company

Off the Square Theatre company is made up of home-schooled kids in grades 7 – 12. The group launched in 2015 when four of the kids’ moms joined together for the sake of enhancing their kids’ arts educations. On, the company describes itself as a “super unique, Christ-centered, student run” company. Coached by parents and professional mentors, theatre company members work on everything from costumes and special effects to choreography and graphic design/marketing. So far, Off the Square has produced The Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. After Pan closes, the company will get busy with Mary Poppins.
