When L heard that the Palo Alto Players were putting on Peter Pan and that her friend Connie’s niece was playing Peter, it was a no brainer to figure out a why to take Grace and James to what is one of her all time favorite musical.
Along with D she’d seen it first on TV numerous times with Mary Martin in the 1960 production. She’d then taken John to see it when he was a lad, with Sandy Duncan playing the title role.
The performance was a special children’s matinee and there were pre-viewing activities, which included make hats and magic wands. The kiddos modeled theirs in front of a window leading to Neverland.
Corrie Farbstein is a fabulous Peter and the rest of the cast was excellent as well, particularly Captain Hook. Given the level of acting, singing, dancing and sets it was hard to believe that it was community theater production.
Willbe watching what this theater company will be putting on in the future…
