THANK YOU to all who joined us for Peter Pan, Jr. the weekend of May 5th - 7th! 

Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Neverland. Their journey introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook! It’s Peter to the rescue when Wendy is taken captive by the dreaded captain, who has his own sinister plans in mind for our hero. 

If your school would be interested in attending a FREE school performance on Friday, May 4th, 2018, please email spotlightschooltickets@calvarycc.org. Each year we have over 2000 local school students attend this show, and we fill up, so get your request in ASAP!
