VAIL — A local dance studio is presenting “Peter Pan,” because it’s fun to perform and fun to watch.
They adjusted it a little bit, said Studio 8100 owner/director Hilde Falk.
“It is not your typical dance recital,” Falk said.
This is Studio 8100’s third production since it launched in October 2012.
“Many of the kids who are dancing are interested in the performing arts and musicals. I like it too,” Falk said.
There is a variety of dancing — ballet, modern, jazz, and hip hop — Falk said.
Dancers range from 4 to 18 years old.
The dance is important, of course, and so is making sure the audience is entertained.
“I know what it’s like to have a sibling in the audience who gets bored,” Falk said.
They did “Peter and the Wolf” two years ago, and “Peter Pan” this year.
“You can’t just do a ballerina show because we have students who want to do other things,” Falk said. “‘Peter Pan’ has everything.”
“Peter Pan” has pirates and Lost Boys and all kinds of groups, sword play, as well as good guys and bad guys who are clearly defined.
A silent auction will close 30 minutes after the final performance on Sunday. Items will also have a “Buy it Now” feature allowing bidders to purchase an item at the pre-set price.
The cast is as follows:
Peter Pan: Charli DeGraff
Tinker Bell: Nicole Falk
Wendy Darling: Colby Wilson
John Darling: Maddox Fitzgerald
Michael Darling: Connor Falk
Captain Hook: Brooke Weller
Mr. Smee: Roberto Mendoza
Tiger Lily: Sydney Dietz

Paul Cuthbertson set out by himself around 3 p.m. Friday from the trailhead that leads up to the Polar Star Inn, according to his father, Mike, but never made it to the popular backcountry hut as a late-spring snowstorm moved in.
