Hi there,

Thank you for the recent updates in the scripts to address the racial sensitivities of Indigenous Americans in Peter Pan. We are performing Peter Pan this year and I have had a few questions regarding the meaning or message behind the "Ug-a-wug" song in the musical and if there is anything offensive in the lyrics of this song. I was just wondering if you had any information that you could provide regarding this. I have googled to try and find an answer but have not been able to find this.

Many thanks

Hi! In response to customers' concerns about the song, an alternative song “True Blood Brothers to the End” is available for customers to use. The sheet music and orchestrations for "True Blood Brothers" are included with the materials you receive with your license.
