Peter Pan takes to the stage

CENTENNIAL CHRISTIAN students go back to where you never grow up in this year’s play.

CENTENNIAL CHRISTIAN students go back to where you never grow up in this year’s play.

Peter Pan takes to the stage with a shipload of characters, including lost boys, natives, mermaids and of course, Captain Hook in his continual pursuit of Pan. The costumes, the tree house and the pirate ship complete the landscape of Never Land.

“It’s a great play for the entire family,” says director Jo Anne Voogd, adding the audience will have a lot of fun.

Voogd says doing this play has been a dream for a long time.

In past years, too few students and not enough crew to make costumes and other set pieces kept the play from happening until now.

Working on the play with the students has been fun and inventive and a lot of creativity has gone into it.

A troupe of people has made distinctive costumes for the actors, and it’s been a celebration of imagination and creativity, she says.

“It’s really a collaborative effort,” says Voogd.

The audition process was long and it’s the big job, finding the right actors, but the school has the talent pool to do it, she says.

Sword fighting will take over the stage and Captain Hook will have to keep his eye out for the crocodile, which will be onstage.

Peter Ramsay is Peter Pan and his arch nemesis Captain Hook is played by Tyler Struyk.

Sara Nutma is Wendy, Josh Sexton is John and Christopher Bishop plays Michael.

Ben Webb is Hook’s right hand man Smee and Ryan Connolly is Starkley..

Peter Pan brings Never Land to life on stage at the R.E.M. Lee Theatre. See City Scene for more details.
