NBC’s upcoming telecast of Peter Pan Live has added another Broadway star to its lineup.

Five-time Tony nominee Kelli O’Hara (most recently of The Bridges of Madison County) has joined the cast as Mrs. Darling, the wife of no-nonsense George Darling (Christian Borle). Besides being the doting mother of the Darling children (who, let’s not forget, allows the dog to babysit), Mrs. Darling gets to sing one of the show’s ballads, the bedtime lullaby “Tender Shepherd.”

In addition to O’Hara’s casting, NBC has also announced the production team behind the Dec. 4 telecast. On board are choreographer Rob Ashford, director Glenn Weiss, musical director David Chase, production designer Derek McLane, costume designer Catherine Zuber, and lighting designer Robert A. Dickinson.

The three-hour live event stars Allison Williams as Peter Pan and Christopher Walken as Captain Hook.
