Allison Williams is going from New York City to Neverland.

The Girls star, who plays struggling single Marnie Michaels on the hit HBO show, is taking her talents to NBC's "Peter Pan Live," where she'll play the lead character, Peter Pan.

"Dreams do come true! #Girls star Allison Williams will play Peter Pan in #PeterPanLive!," NBC announced on its Twitter page Wednesday. And it looks like it really was her dream to play the role. After the announcement was made, Allison posted an adorable shot on Instagram of herself as a kid suited up in a Peter Pan costume.

"Thrilled to be playing Peter Pan live on NBC in December. I've been rehearsing for a REALLY long time," she captioned the shot. Allison continued talking about her excitement for the role in a statement, according to Entertainment Weekly, saying, "I have wanted to play Peter Pan since I was about three years old, so this is a dream come true."

"It's such an honor to be a part of this adventure, and I'm very excited to get to work with this extraordinarily talented team. And besides, what could go wrong in a live televised production with simultaneous flying, sword fighting and singing?"

We've already gotten a little taste of Allison's singing chops on Girls, considering Marnie has been trying to kick off her singing career with little impromptu performances at parties and random low budget music videos.

Peter Pan Live airs Dec. 4. What do you think of Allison playing Peter Pan? Tell us in the comments.
