The live, multimedia staging of Peter Pan, which premiered in London last season and is now playing San Francisco, will embark on a national tour, according to Variety.

The production company Threesixty Degree presents the high-flying theatrical event, staged within an in-the-round tent, which utilizes CGI movie projections to create dazzling flying and underwater sequences. Peter Pan is currently booked in San Francisco through October.

Producer Robert Butters told Variety that the $4.5 million production will likely arrive in Los Angeles next, with a lengthy national tour in its future. The current production is a non-equity venture, but producers said they are in talks with Actors' Equity.

Peter Pan, which travels within a custom circular tent that seats over 1,200, necessitates a large open park space at each of its touring destinations, akin to Cirque du Soleil's signature blue and yellow tents. The structure is also unique in that it is suspended by an external skeleton, rather than traditional tent poles, allowing the cast to fly throughout the auditorium.

Ben Harrison directed Peter Pan, which was adapted from the J.M. Barrie tale by Tanya Ronder. William Dudley serves as designer, with Mark Henderson as lighting designer, Gregory Clarke as sound designer, Sue Buckmaster as head of puppetry and Fleur Darkin as choreographer.
