Directed by visionary Tony-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award winning film, Finding Neverland tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles 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 pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes a 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.

My boys and I are all in love with Mary Poppins these days!
Which to name? One of the best parts of parenting has been the opportunity to revisit my literary friends from my youth. We’ve traveled with Robinson Crusoe, let our imagination fly with Mary Poppins, fought pirates with Peter Pan, and picked blueberries with Sal. Books are the best adventure there is. Impossible to choose.
We are reading and loving Reddy Fox right now!
My girls love Corduroy!
My favorite storybook as a child was “The Shocking Pink Duck” by Marillee Rabb Chapman. We lived in the same city as the author, met her, visited her home and I remember being in shock/awe to see the places mentioned in the book come to life.

My girl likes to read a lot so she likes many stories but lately she has mentioned a lot of “Charlotte’s Web”.
My boys say their favorite classic children’s story is Peter Pan. My oldest, David, says he likes it because he loves adventure. My youngest boy who’s 8 years old, likes the adventure too. I took him to see it at the Synetic Theatre twice. The first time was just for me and him (for one-on-one quality time), and he loved it so much we came back with his sister and brother, and they loved it too! My youngest child, a 6 year old girl, says her favorite is The Princess and the Frog. We have the DVD and we’ve read the original story in
our fairy tales book as well. It would be a wonderful treat to win a chance to see the original Peter Pan story, Finding Neverland.
Oh I would be so thrilled to win these! Finding Neverland is an all-time favorite movie of mine; it’s so magical. My 7 year old and I have enjoyed reading Winnie the Pooh together! One of our favorite activities together is going to plays, but it’s been a while since we’ve been able to go to one. I’d love to have this experience with her.
My boys love Huckleberry Finn ♥️

Totoro is our current favorite.
Currently my son’s favorite classic is The Jungle Book, however my wife has a t-shirt that says, “I’m So Fly I Neverland” and he has no idea what it means. I think it would be great to introduce him to this classic.

Dumbo:) My 3 yr old loves this classic story.
There are so many but the one that comes to mind is….. The Lorax! Technically, I will admit, it’s not a ‘classic’ but we’ve read it thousands of times to our munchkins, I strongly vote that it should be considered one. And its message couldn’t be any more on point in the current climate. Ha!
Aside from The Lorax, my kids love Harry Potter. Again, not a classic, as of today, but I have a hunch, it will be in a few decades or so.
Btw- Thank you for your amazing site. You’re our go-to when we are looking for adventures.
P.S. My favorite Peter Pan line:
You know that place between sleep and awake where you’re always dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting.
The Gruffalo was a near-memorized favorite for a loooong time : )
Thumbelina by Hans Christian Andersen. Children of the Forest by Elsa Beskow is wonderful!
We love Charlotte’s Web!
My daughter loves Harry potter. She has read all books even though they are much advanced for her age.

Our favorite tales are those of Sherlock Holmes! We’ve been listening to children’s Sherlock Holmes’ tales on audiobook.
We all love Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey!
Peter Pan has always been one of my favorite children’s stories, in all its forms. I grew up watching the Disney movie, reading the book, and enjoying the sequel to both. I read all five Peter and the Starcatchers books, starred in the play after seeing it 3 times on and off broadway, and wrote pages and pages of fan fiction placing myself in Peter’s world. Finding Neverland was yet another amazing medium for me to be absorbed into the world of Peter Pan, but unfortunately I have yet to see it live. I grew up sharing every version of Peter’s story with my little sister and now I’m sharing them with my beautiful girlfriend.
My son’s favorite classic children’s story is beauty and the beast!
Anything by Roald Dahl
I have multiple children, but the one story they all loved was the Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Anne of Green Gables, Dr Dolittle, Charlotte’s Web, or Pippi Longstocking. Thanks for the chance!
Secret GArden, Mary Poppins, and Harry Potters if it can be called classics!
A favorite that we return to again and again is The Owl and the Pussy Cat.
A sick day for Amos Magee. Thank you!

My son loves Katy and the Big Snow. It has a little map he loves to follow along with.

For this same reason I love the prsesenation of children with Willy Wonka. My daughter started loving Cinderella to Tinkerbell to Rapunzel and now love Descendents and Malificient. I wpiñd love to protect her innocence and believe longer and would love love love to see Finding Neverland! Thank you.
