The famous character of Peter Pan first appeared in the 1902 book The Little White Bird. Two years later, his play Peter Pan premiered on the London stage and became a great success.

The Main Characters

why did we choose Peter Pan

Peter Pan is our hero because he inspired me to take a risk at adventure, and to believe in ourselves. Also, no matter how old you are, you can still have fun like a kid even though you grew up. "All children, except one, grow up" -J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan.

For us growing up isn't a bad thing because when you grow up you get more responsibilities. Growing up is good because you get to explore more, and be successful in life. In Peter Pan's perspective growing up is not optional. For us there is a time to grow up, but also every now and then its fun to be a kid again, and to have those special moments. Peter Pan feels the only way to have adventure is to stay young, but our adventure is taking on the world while growing up.
