A captured-live high definition broadcast from the United Kingdom of “Peter Pan” will be presented as a National Theatre Live production Saturday, June 10, at 2 p.m. at the Strand Theatre, 345 Main S.

J.M. Barrie’s much-loved tale is directed by Sally Cookson (NT Live: “Jane Eyre”) in a production that is edgy, bold and different — adults play the roles of the children. Cookson’s wonderfully inventive playfulness reinforces the hero’s devotion to fun and games, but remains true to the melancholy spirit of Barrie’s play.

When Peter Pan, leader of the Lost Boys, loses his shadow, headstrong Wendy helps him to re-attach it. In return, she is invited to Neverland, where Tinker Bell the fairy, Tiger Lily and the vengeful Captain Hook await. A riot of magic, music and make-believe ensues.

This co-production with Bristol Old Vic theater is recommended for age 10 and older. It runs just under three hours, including one intermission. Tickets are $12, general admission. To buy tickets, or for more information, visit rocklandstrand.com; call 594-0070, ext. 3; or email info@rocklandstrand.com.
