Peter Pan Tickets Now On Sale

To Purchase Tickets: High School Theatre Presents Peter Pan

If you take 38 cast members, 26 crew members, three directors, 39 rehearsals, six Saturday shop calls, 47 gallons of paint, 40 costumes, and five scenic locations, and add them all together, you get Wakeland High School Theatre Department’s production of “Peter Pan.” The theatre department has been hard at work since the start of the school year in order to put on a great show.

J.M. Barrie’s 1904 play was adapted into the musical WHS is performing. The show features music by Mark “Moose” Charlap, Jule Styne, with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, Betty Comden and Adolph Green.

“‘Peter Pan’ really exemplifies how everyone was when they were a little kid, it’s that imagination that we used to have,” senior Rani Solomon, who is proudly portraying the lead, Peter Pan, said, “You know, every little kid wants to fly and jump around and be a fairy, so I think the show just helps kids live their fantasies.”

Show times are 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday for a total of 5 performances.

$15 for adults, $10 dollars for students and seniors, and $1 for children 5 and under.
Tickets will also be available at the door pending availability.

So Join Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael, John, Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, Tiger Lily and, of course, the Crocodile on their adventures in Neverland as they tell the tale of the boy who won’t grow up.

Friday Evening Shop Call for Peter Pan

Due to scheduling conflicts on Saturday we will be working on Friday after school this week instead of Saturday!  Please make it a point to attend.  We will be working from about 4:30-8:00, and can use several people.  Remember, parents are more than welcome to attend!

We have not had strong attendance this year at after school or weekend tech calls.  Thank you to the few of you that make it a point to be there: Audrey, Chris, Josh, Laura, Brandy, Lauren, Kat & Tori from the crew, and Rani, Natalie, Grace, Sarah and Holly from the cast!.

For planning purposes, here are the remaining shop calls for Peter Pan, in addition to our regularly scheduled Monday-Thursday build times.

Friday, November 8th – 4:30-8:00

Saturday, November 16th – 10:30-3:30

Friday, November 22nd – 4:30-8:30

Saturday, November 23rd – 10:00-3:30 (Yes, this is the Saturday before Thanksgiving.  If you are in town, we need you to come help us get the show built)

Saturday, November 30th if needed – 10:00-3:30 (Again, this is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and the need of this shop call will rely heavily on the previous Saturday’s call)

We begin technical rehearsals as soon as we come back from Thanksgiving break.  This means we need to accomplish as much as possible between now and then.  While small things can still be done in class and after school during that week, there cannot be any construction elements not ready for rehearsal.

We need you to help us complete the build!  Whether you are in the cast or on the crew you’re assistance is vital to the success of the production, even if all you can do is tear strips of muslin!
