Visitors could view a treasure of historic artifacts from major stage and film productions of “Peter Pan” during the last century.

They could do some Peter Pan-themed art activities and make treasures of their own.

Why, Peter Pan and Captain Hook themselves even stopped by, reading books to the little ones and entertaining with some salty sea stories of their own.

The middle school received a percentage of all books, merchandise and cafe items sold during the day-long event.

Those funds will help the theater department produce and perform “Peter Pan” on stage during its 10th anniversary theater season next year.
