When the carefree and careless Peter Pan flies into the nursery of the Darling home, Wendy follows her instincts for maternity and adventure, bringing her little brothers along to the magical Neverland to take care of the motherless Lost Boys. Soon the Darling children are swept into Peter’s battle with Captain Hook and his mostly-fearsome pirate crew. With so much excitement, why ever go home again…?
Young Performers Theatre
Our mission is to inspire a love of theatre and the performing arts in children at the youngest possible age, through education and complete immersion, to build the foundation for a life long appreciation for the performing arts.
Young Performers Theatre (Anthony Manning Kunin Foundation) is a non-profit children’s theatre located at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. In 1982, theatre educator Matilda Kunin founded YPT to honor her son Anthony, who was killed in a tragic accident. Since then, YPT has presented over one hundred mainstage children’s productions of classics such as Peter Pan and Winnie the Pooh as well as premieres by local playwrights, including The Adventures of Six Toes, written by San Francisco author Danny Martin and The Baker Street Irregulars by Sean Owens. YPT is the only full-time children’s theatre in the San Francisco Bay Area, and one of the very few theatres in the country offering introductory acting classes to children as young as three years old. Over YPT’s thirty-year history, the theatre has demonstrated an unparalleled commitment to involving children in theatre at the earliest ages, and sustaining their interest in the arts for a lifetime.
