Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Duluth Playhouse is bringing the majestic world of Neverland to the stage this holiday season, with the classic tale of Peter Pan or the Boy Who Would Not Grow Up.

The Playhouse partnered with a professional world-class flying effects company to ensure Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Wendy, John and Michael fly with ease.

According to the experts with "D2 Flying Effects," it takes a fly crew of six to operate the rigging.

"There is flying throughout almost the entire show, so I don't get to take the harness off at all which is a little sad because it's hard to move around in but with enough practice you won't even know the difference."

Peter Pan will open at the Playhouse on December 5th and will run through the 22nd.
