DLUX Puppets returns to the Bankhead Theater this weekend with an exciting new family-fun production of "Peter Pan," featuring the signature hand-built puppets.
As the story unfolds about Peter and his travels with Wendy to Neverland to encounter Captain Hook and the pirates, the puppets' antics are enhanced by popular songs from past decades and digital scenery that helps make the magic real. Peter teaches Wendy that "a brain filled with fear has little space for dreams."
The show is the creation of Derek and Wendy Lux -- he built the life-sized puppets and performs their voices, and she plays Wendy. The puppets range in size from a few feet to over 7 feet tall, and each one is different in terms of style and scale.
After the show, Derek, Wendy and the puppets come out to greet members of the audience in the lobby so fans can see the puppets close up.
The performance is at 3 p.m. June 2. Tickets are $10 for students and $20 for adults. Visit lvpac.org or call 373-6800.
