Peter Pan, played by Ann Black, sits on a large mushroom, part of the elaborate set for the 1927 May Fete. The background includes a treehouse built high in the set. The May Fete was a modest production from 1909-1916 until Nell Martindale took over as head and expanded the small show into a spectacular dance-drama. From 1917 to 1927, May Fete saw elaborate sets and as many as 500 performers. The last May Fete was in 1927 when Martindale resigned to be married.
