NEW YORK, March 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Herrick Entertainment will produce and finance J.M. Barrie's PETER PAN in a new state of the art production, combining surround video, a cast that flies, puppetry and music, all performed in the threesixty Theatre in the round. Making its Washington area premiere, beginning June 24, 2015, this new production conceived by an award-winning creative team, is the beloved family tale that features dazzling flying sequences that will capture the imagination of adults and children alike.
Norton Herrick, Chairman of Herrick Entertainment is producing the show, and overseeing the development of this spectacular production. Herrick Entertainment has rapidly become a respected force in the theatrical community, and was a Tony Award recipient for the Broadway Revival of PIPPIN and HAIR THE MUSICAL. Herrick has not only produced for Broadway and touring Broadway, but also in Las Vegas with his production of HAIRSPRAY. In addition, Herrick Entertainment has continued to produce major motion pictures including 2 GUNS, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg; award-winning LONE SURVIVOR, starring Mark Wahlberg; the supernatural thriller NIGHTLIGHT and VERY GOOD GIRLS, starring Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen and Demi Moore.
Herrick recently launched Herrick TV and has several high profile projects in development that include scripted and unscripted programming. In addition, his vast real estate holdings continue to expand exponentially and is a longtime supporter of progressive and humanitarian causes.
Herrick Entertainment's production of PETER PAN is presented in the striking setting of The threesixty in the round Theatre at Tysons Corner Center (1971 Chain Bridge Road at International Drive, Tysons Corner, VA). The show is performed "in the round" in a 1450 seat theater-tent. The entire interior is lit with more than 15,000 square feet of Hi Resolution video so that both cast and audience are immersed in a CGI (computer generated image) Neverland. When Peter and Wendy fly to Neverland, the audience flies with them over 400 square miles of virtual London and beyond. Norton Herrick, Chairman of The Herrick Company offers that "the PETER PAN Threesixty production is that rare opportunity to tell a legendary story with equal parts of innovation and grandeur. Audiences can sit back and be transported to a magical place and time, and be able to share it with their family."
PETER PAN is presented by arrangement with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity, Samuel French Limited and Threesixty Entertainment.
