About the show

Part of the New York Musical Festival: This new tuner is about a famous little fairy with a big story of her own. More…

In a time before time was important, there was an island full of music and magic, where pirates, natives, fairies, and other mysterious folk lived, loved, and fought together until one young fairy and one young pirate crossed paths. When first mate James of the Jolly Roger meets the yearning, idealistic young fairy Tinkerbell, their star-crossed romance brings together the entire population of Neverland, from the mischievous Dream Weaver fairies to the mighty Natives, and even a colony of scavenging boys whose leader fell from the sky.
