PICK OF THE DAY

Full circle You might want to hold on when Peter and the Darling children take flight in the threesixty° Theatre production of "Peter Pan."

The show is presented in a 1,300-seat theater tent lit with more than 15,000 square feet of high-resolution video. The performance, presented "in the round," features 23 actors, puppets, and original music. Neverland, here we come. Oct. 18-Dec. 30. Tue-Fri 7 p.m., Sat 2 and 7 p.m., Sun 12:30 and 4:30 p.m. See website for exceptions. $35-$75. City Hall Plaza, Boston. 888-772-6849, www.peterpantheshow.com/boston
