Point Breeze-based Gemini Children’s Theater is getting set to kick off its latest season of original, interactive musical productions.

The new season will soar on September 20th, with Gemini’s presentation of the iconic and timeless tale of Peter Pan. Running weekends through October 12th, Peter Pan continues Gemini’s longstanding tradition of producing original adaptations of classic children’s literature and fairy tales, along with original scripts that are penned in-house.
