In B – The Underwater Bubble Show, Mr. B finds himself transported to a special, colorful, happy place called Bubblelandia.

FINDING NEVERLAND

October 11-15, 2017 (seven performances) Orpheum Theater | Slosburg Hall | Tickets start at $35

The winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash tells the story of playwright J.M. Barrie struggling to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers.

With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is “far and away the best musical of the year!” (NPR).
