It was the toast of Milwaukee’s performing arts community and now Peter Pan From the Milwaukee Ballet, recorded and produced for television by Milwaukee Public Television (MPTV), will premiere on Friday, April 18 at 9 p.m. on West Virginia PBS.

Choreographed by Milwaukee Ballet Artistic Director Michael Pink, Peter Pan took Milwaukee by storm, playing to sold-out houses and earning standing ovations nightly. Featuring an original score from British composer Philip Feeney, this impressive stage show features dancers flying high over the action and a looming, full pirate ship that sails across the stage

The ballet features Leading Artist Marc Petrocci as the iconic Peter Pan and rising star Valerie Harmon as Wendy.  The production also boasts a top-notch creative team, including Emmy Award-winning lighting designer David Grill.

Peter Pan from the Milwaukee Ballet is part of the ongoing, multi-platform “PBS Arts” initiative, which highlights PBS’s commitment to the performing and visual arts, and gives millions of viewers a front-row seat and a backstage pass for the best music, theater, dance, art, and cultural history programs on-air and online.  For more information, visit www.pbs.org/arts.
