----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------City Parks Foundation PresentsNeverland: Peter Returns

City Parks Foundation is proud to announce the debut of Neverland: Peter Returns, an original marionette production is running now at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre in Central Park through the end of September. Based on J.M. Barrie's iconic Peter Pan tales, Neverland: Peter Returns is the Swedish Cottage's spin on the beloved children's classic. Leaving their parents behind, the Darling children follow Peter Pan back home to Neverland for the adventure of a lifetime. When the cunning Captain Hook turns Peter's pals Tiger Lily and Tinker Bell against him, the children team up with the Never Boys to save the day, learning the value of forgiveness and friendship.

Ticket prices are: $8/children under 12, $12/all others.

The Cottage is located in Central Park near the 81st Street and Central Park West entrance, just south of the Delacorte Theater. For more information, please visit

About the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre The enchanting Swedish architecture and craftsmanship of the Swedish Cottage which was suggestive of a model schoolhouse caught the eye of Central Park creator Frederick Law Olmsted, who brought it to Central Park in 1877. A traveling marionette company was founded in 1939 and in 1947 the Swedish Cottage became home to the company. In 1973, a permanent theater was constructed inside the Swedish Cottage, designed for marionette performances. Under the direction of City Parks Foundation, the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre and CityParks PuppetMobile continues to thrill audiences from around the world, entertaining upwards of 65,000 people each year.
