Have you ever wondered why Captain Hook disliked Peter Pan so much? It was always just a given in the story that they were enemies. Come see where it all began - and how it all ended. Take a look at the beginning and meet James Hook before he was pirate. It will change how you see a lot of things.
A fascinating way to present the tale of Peter Pan from the viewpoint of Captain Hook. While he becomes the sympathic character, you still never completely believe he's the good guy. There's a dark element, a dangerous element, that is always lurking within him that keeps this from being a true turning of the table for this fairy tale.
James never wanted to be a boy forever, but he never imagined growing up in a place like Neverland. We get to see all our old familiar characters from a new perspective and in a new light. Tiger Lily, the Lost Boys, Wendy and the gang, even the crocodile take on a new meaning when you see them through the eyes of Captain Hook.
There are plenty of piratey adventures and Peter Pan pranks that help to lighten the story just a little and remind you of the original tale and its fun atmosphere.
