Taylor Louderman will join the production as Wendy Darling. Louderman previously played a lead role on Broadway in “Bring In On: The Musical” and has appeared in touring productions of “Annie,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Grease” and “Aida.”
Alanna Saunders will play Tiger Lily, Native American ruler of her Neverland “islanders,” who joins forces with Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael, John and the Lost Boys to defeat Captain Hook after being captured. Saunders’ stage credits include roles in “Gypsy,” with Leslie Uggams, and “A Chorus Line.” NBC notes that Saunders is descended from members of the Cherokee Nation, a counterpoint to the recent controversy over Rooney Mara’s casting in Warner Bros.’ upcoming “Pan” movie.
“Peter Pan Live!” will air Dec. 4 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
