Peter Pan Jr is underway by Katelyn N.
On April 26th and 27th, the Saunders Middle School drama club will be preforming Peter Pan. Peter Pan, a fictional character created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie is a playful and somewhat naughty boy who can fly and never grows up. He lives his life having adventures on t Neverland, a mystical Island. Peter is the leader of the Lost Boys, and has a fairy as a best friend, a pirate as an enemy and interacts with with mermaids, Native Americans, and regular folks, like Wendy and her family.
The Show is Called Peter Pan Jr. because the story has been edited for a middle school production. There are some scenes left out, but the main story line is still very much intact.
Mrs. Pereyra, the Drama Coach, said, "We are doing Peter Pan because I think the voices and cast members are a great fit for it."
Pereyra is expecting at least 300 people in attendance for each showing. When she was asked about the auditioning process, she replied, "It was a long process and a very difficult decision, so Mrs. Cerven and I listened to the audition recordings to find out who really stood out."
Playing the lead of Peter Pan will be, Christine and Alaina. The lead of Wendy will be performed by Abby and Susannah.
For the sets don’t design themselves so for that task, there is a team of at least six students on construction. Mrs. Pereyra, a graduate form George Mason University and our Chorus and Music Appreciation teacher, is certain that Peter Pan will be a success. The tickets will be $5.00, and well worth the expense! We hope to see everyone out supporting this event!
