Giveaway: Enter to Win Tickets to Finding Neverland at National Theatre!

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.

Finding Neverland is coming to National Theatre February 26 – March 3. Recommended for age 7 and up, run time is approximately 2 hours and 25 minutes, including one intermission. Tickets are $54-114 and can be purchased online. You can also look for a deal on select seats and, of course, try to win a Family 4-Pack of tickets through the giveaway below.

    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.

    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.

  45. Kim Vaughn

    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!

    Dumbo:) My 3 yr old loves this classic story.

  91. Annie

    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.

  99. Liz

  100. Dalia Hamilton

    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.
