Talespinner Children's Theatre Presents "Hook and Smee"

A family friendly theatre performance of "Hook and Smee"

In honor of ten years of shows, we welcome back a previously produced TCT crowd-pleaser! Captain Hook is a name to send delightful shivers down the spine of anyone who knows the tale of Peter Pan and Tinkerbell. But have you ever wondered just how Hook came to Never Never Land with his merry band of buccaneers? This is the story of how Hook met Smee and came to be the scourge of “the Land of Pan.” All your favorite characters are here but get ready for some giddy surprises that will make you clap your hands with glee! This family-friendly production runs from March 11-26: Saturdays at 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm, and Sundays at 3:00 pm. An ASL interpreted performance will be on March 26th made possible by the HEARD, and open captions will be available on March 26th, and for both performances on March 18th.

“This show is the perfect balance of silly, side splitting comedy and the tale of a potent friendship. Even within the fantastical world of fairies and magic, a relatable tale of how kindness and friendship can change the course of our lives emerges. While James Hook may feel like an unlikely hero, Hook and Smee will have you rooting for him all the way” says director Ren Twardzik.

Tickets will be available soon, and can be reserved online at and are also available in-person at the box office which opens 45 minutes before each performance. All tickets are Pay-What-You-Choose, thanks to a generous sponsorship from the Ohio Savings Bank. Hook and Smee is best suited for children aged 6 and up, and runs approximately 50 minutes.
