Giveaway: Win tickets to see Peter Pan at Walton Arts Center!

Who’s ready to win a trip to Neverland? One lucky mama will score 4 tickets to take her family to see Peter Pan at Walton Arts Center on opening night, November 2nd!

Peter Pan, who comes to hear the stories Mrs. Darling tells each night, has lost his shadow.

After Wendy Darling re-attaches Peter’s shadow in exchange for a kiss, Peter becomes entranced by Wendy, and convinces her and her three brothers to return with him to Neverland – a magical world of pirates, fairies and a gang of boys destined to stay young forever.

Walton Arts Center’s artistic affiliate Trike Theatre will take us on a fantastic flight of adventure in this retelling of the classic tale of growing up.

Heads up about “relaxed performances”: The Peter Pan shows on Nov. 3 at 10am and Nov. 10 at 7pm are a relaxed performances, meaning they’ve been adapted to incorporate special modifications to serve adults and children with sensory-input disorders, autism or other developmental or cognitive disability, as well as anyone who might feel uncomfortable attending a typical live theater performance.

  1. I miss how easy being a kid was. I keep my kids kids as long as society will allow. My 13 year old is still as innocent as can be. He has a very hard time lying or covering up his mistakes.

  2. I miss so much about being a kid, but I probably miss naps and no bills the most!

  3. I miss the magic of the world! Being blind to the ‘bad’ going on around us and only seeing the good.

  4. I miss having no major responsibilities and having a million friends with no judgments!

  5. I would love to take my kiddos and niece’s!! They would love to see this! (Or at least I would)!! 😂😂

  6. The thing I miss most about being a kid is playing Barbies for hours with my sister every weekend.

  7. I miss being taken care of when I am sick. Being able to go to bed until I am better knowing people are going to make sure that I am warm, fed, and cuddled.

  8. I miss loving to wake up in the morning. Now, I don’t want to get out of bed! I remember the feeling of waking up and wanting to immediately play and I see how excited my kids are when they get up. They don’t want to keep sleeping, they want to enjoy the day!

  9. I miss the carefree world around me! No bills . . . just play time, friendships and fun!!

  10. I miss the excitement of Halloween and Christmas. I still love it, and love my children’s excitement, but wish I could still feel it myself

  11. I miss playing outside with my friends for hours till the street lights came on. Going in and trying to stay up all night.

  12. I miss having freedom to play whenever I want, I miss not having any fear about riding down the hill on my bike without worrying about hurting myself.

  13. There are many things I miss about being a kid! I miss the magic and wonder of the world with the ability to BELIEVE in happy endings, that dreams come true and that I could be or do anything I wanted in life. I miss the ability to make my parents proud and to be taken care of with love by my mom.

  14. I miss enjoying the little things in life and slowing things down a bit. I try to let my daughter take her time and not rush. She loves catching lightning bugs or collecting rocks. I miss little things like that. It seems as an adult we are always on the go and rushing around. I try to slow things down a bit for her and just enjoy life TODAY.

  15. I miss just being able to live in the moment of every day whether playing outside, going to school, or being at home with my sisters. Being sheltered from most worries and responsibilities, it was easier to be myself.

  16. I miss being able to eat 3 meals a day without having to plan for, shop for, and cook them myself!

  17. I miss the loss of ‘believing’. As a child I could believe that Santa is ‘real’, tinker bell will ‘get better with a simple clap’ , the tooth fairy really knows about my first tooth and I might be able to jump off the roof of the dog house with a towel and really fly!

  18. Riding bikes or exploring the woods near our neighborhood with friends. Being able to go over to friends’ houses & play for hours. Snow days. Halloween excitement with just a touch of spooky. Being outside in the fall when the monarchs were migrating. I miss “kid eyes magic”

  19. I miss how innocent I was. Everything in the world seemed right. I could go on an adventure through the woods and fields and not have a worry in my mind…

  20. I was just talking about this today. I miss imagination. Playing with my dolls, being a different person, going places I’ll never go. Being a child was so much fun. I miss it.

  21. My daughter lover Peter Pan. After watching the movie, she would salute like Smee and say “my captain.”

  22. I miss not having to worry about anything! Crazy thing is I couldn’t wait to turn 18 and be on my own😜

  23. I miss playing on my grandparents farm, chasing fireflies, and jumping on hay bales in the barn with my cousins. ❤️

  24. I miss not having to make decisions about everything. Just letting mom and dad decide and going with it.

  25. I miss the “want” to play.. seems like adult stuff clouds my mind..miss the urge to pretend!

  26. I miss not having a care in the world. A great day is just coming home to play.

  27. I miss having no big worries, spending time with my parents and siblings every night and not having to do laundry 🤣

  28. I miss not having a care in the world. I miss the great times with my parents and siblings.

  29. Not having bills is definitely something I miss! I also miss how summer seemed so much longer when we were kids.

  30. I miss how wild your imagination is when your a kid and all the wonderful adventures it would give and feeling free and not having the pressure of being an adult and all the responsibilities that we have when we grow up.

  31. Playing hide and seek with all the neighborhood kids…around the whole neighborhood!

  32. I miss being surprised and bewildered by everything – such as the smell of springtime after a long winter, seeing a magnolia tree for the first time in all of its glory, tasting blueberry pie for the first time, feeling the gentle kisses of butterfly wings on my face as I danced in a field of flowers with no regard for time or what was going on in the world, and the sound of my grandmother’s voice lulling me to sleep with a story she had made up about some wonderful place.

  33. As a kid I didn’t have to pay bills and didn’t have much responsibility. ugh I would love to see this play.
