EAGLE-VAIL — Homestake Peak School’s upper school drama club will present Disney’s production of “Peter Pan Jr.” today and Friday night in the school’s auditorium. For the past 12 weeks, 23 children in grades five though eight have been rehearsing diligently for this two-night showcase.
Peter Pan is the perfect show for the Vail Valley, where no one wants to grow up. In Disney’s “Peter Pan Jr.,” Wendy is a dreamer who tells stories to her brothers, Michael and John, about Neverland and Peter Pan. Peter Pan comes every night to hear these stories and loses his shadow. When he comes to retrieve his lost shadow, the adventure begins.
The show is based on the animated Disney classic, featuring plenty of exuberant group numbers and solos, with a cast that has been extended to include a couple of fifth-graders.
“This story of never wanting to grow up and having the faith to believe in yourself is a classic story that hits home to everyone of all ages,” said director Deanna Piper, adding that there will be a few twists that are bound to excite. “This show will appeal to all, young and old and even those still young at heart.”
Several actors have multiple roles in the show, with costumes changes and songs sung by all in the cast. Sandy Apps, costume manager and producer, is thrilled by how all the costumes turned out and can’t wait to see the audience light up their Tinkerbell wands.
