Meet the Touring Company of Finding Neverland
The recent Broadway musical packs up its fairy dust to hit the road.
The stars of the upcoming touring production of Finding Neverland met the press at their rehearsal studio on September 22. The tour kicks off on October 7 at Shea's Performing Arts Center in Buffalo before an official opening October 11.
The touring company is led by Kevin Kern as J.M. Barrie, Christine Dwyer as Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, and Tom Hewitt as Charles Frohman and Captain Hook, alongside Joanna Glushak, Jordan Cole, Finn Faulconer, Ben Krieger, Jacob Morrell, Gregory Trechel, and Mitchell Wray.
The ensemble features Cameron Bond, Sarah Charles, Adrianne Chu, Calvin Cooper, Dwelvan David, Josh Drake, Victoria Huston-Elem, Crystal Kellogg, Melissa Hunter McCann, Connor McRory, Thomas Miller, Courtney Ortiz, Noah Plomgren, Matthew Quinn, Corey Rives, Dee Tomasetta, Lael Van Keuren, and Matt Wolpe.
With a score by Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy and a book by James Graham, Finding Neverland explores the friendship of playwright J.M. Barrie and Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, a widowed mother whose four boys inspired the beloved Peter Pan stories. It is based on the 2004 film of the same title, which itself was based on Allan Knee's play The Man Who Was Peter Pan. It is directed by Diane Paulus.
