Five Things: Peter Pan Jr.

Why did you choose Peter Pan?

Music director Greg Papesh and I chose a production which the kids would enjoy and our eighth-grade class could fill the cast well.

What is your favorite scene to direct?

I don’t necessarily have a favorite scene, but I enjoy the singing and dancing throughout. Greg Papesh is extremely talented, and our students rehearse often to make the songs and dances great.

How many students are involved?

Thirty-six eighth-graders

How are students preparing for their roles?

We have practices after school and once a week during the school day. Students have had their scripts and roles since the end of March. They work on their lines at home as well.

Why should audiences see the show?

People should come see the show if they are interested in the story of Peter Pan or a group of dynamic, talented youth performing live.
