National Theatre Live: PETER PAN
Captured live at the National Theatre, a recorded performance of JM Barrie’s much-loved tale. When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to reattach it.

Come sip eggnog, nibble holiday cookies, and enjoy the songs of the season before the (well, not open, but you’ll feel the warmth) fire. Refreshments are courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
