Overview

It's the adventure of a lifetime for the Darling children as they leave the safety of their home to accompany Peter Pan and Tinkerbell to Neverland. 

Ideal for KS3 performers, PANTASTIC has dozens of great parts, ten wonderful songs and a funny, dramatic and - at times - heart-breaking story. Written for three separate groups of characters, the flexible nature of the script allows for easy adding or reducing of characters. The Editable WORD Script is available as part of your purchase if you wish to adapt the show to fit your needs. 

Synopsis

The play begins with a musical exploration of what it means to grow up and how wonderful it would be to stay young forever (NOBODY WANTS TO GROW OLD).

Inside the nursery, Mrs Darling finishes the bedtime story and is just tucking Wendy, John and Michael into bed when she discovers somebody’s shadow on the window ledge. With the lights out and everyone asleep, Peter and Tink – who have been listening to the story from the balcony – creep into the nursery to reclaim it. Despite Tink taking an immediate disliking to Wendy, it isn’t long before the Darling children are flying off to Neverland, enthralled by Peter’s tales of pirates and adventure (HIGHER AND HIGHER).

In Neverland, we meet the Lost Boys, Pirates and Natives, not to mention the crocodile (HERE IN NEVERLAND). Suddenly Tink appears in the sky and tells them that Peter wants the Lost Boys to “shoot the Wendy bird”. Tootles takes aim and brings her crashing to the ground, only to realise that he has shot “a lady”. Luckily for him – not to mention for Tink – Wendy is saved by the acorn-button ‘kiss’ which Peter had given to her. To allow Wendy to convalesce comfortably, Peter and the Lost Boys build her a home of her own – a Wendy house.

Meanwhile, Captain Hook is feeling melancholic. Smee suggests it is due to Peter Pan, the boy who cut off Hook’s arm and fed it to the crocodile (MONTROUS LITTLE BOY). They decide to kidnap the new arrival, Wendy, and use her to lure “Pan” to his death.

Wendy has cooked up a wonderful imaginary dinner for the Lost Boys. She retires to her Wendy house and receives a visit from Tiger Lily, chief of the Natives, who warns her of Hook’s plan to kidnap her. Too late, though, for moments later they have both been captured by pirates and dragged off to the ship – all witnessed by a delighted Tink. Hook is equally thrilled, but his joy turns to terror when he hears the dreaded ‘tick-tock’ of the clock inside the crocodile’s stomach. Only another victim (the pirate, Cecco) saves Hook from an untimely death (TICK TOCK CROCODILE).

In their camp, the Natives celebrate the Earth and all it provides for them (MOTHER EARTH). With dawn approaching, they worry that Tiger Lily has not returned. They decide to confront the Lost Boys. Meanwhile, the Lost Boys realise that Wendy, too, is missing. Peter interrogates a guilty-looking Tink and learns that the pirates have kidnapped both of them. Tink is ashamed of herself for keeping this secret and vows to turn things around (BELIEVE IN ME).

Hook decides that Tiger Lily is one prisoner too many. He sends his least competent pirates, Jukes and Starkey, with instructions to kill her and dump her body in the lake. Needless to say, they fail. Peter and Tink rescue Tiger Lily which unites the Lost Boys and the Natives (LET'S BEAT THE PIRATES). All that is left is to rescue Wendy, defeat the pirates and ensure that Hook ends up firmly in the jaws of the hungry crocodile.

With the mission accomplished and Wendy relieved to be free, she recognises that it is time to be getting home (GOODBYE TO NEVERLAND). Upon arrival at the nursery, the window is still open and Mrs Darling is overjoyed at the return of her children. Nevertheless, even she is surprised when the Lost Boys enter up the stairs, seeking a real mother of their own. Only Peter remains outside, destined to stay young forever in his beloved Neverland (PETER PAN IS MISSING).
