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.
