AIS rolled out Peter Pan, their second spring drama, on the 3rd and 4th of May, receiving fantastic audience reviews and a real current of genuine excitement among the student cast and crew. Helmed by director Laura Hamm, the production was a feast for the senses and a true accomplishment for all involved.
Laura chose the Piers Chapter Robinson version of Peter Pan because of its unique musical accessibility for both young and older students and its upbeat, catchy, fun story – “Not as many ballads as Broadway” as Laura says. The play was almost entirely student run. Grades K- 9 contributed to the acting, directing, back stage management, and set design! Peter Pan was played by Antonio Barreras, a 7th grader, Wendy was played by Alejandra Vásquez, an 8th grader, Captain Hook was played by Solveig Barrios, a 9th grader and supporting roles like Tinker Bell and the Lost Boys were played by students from grades K-5.
The energy certainly carried over on the two feature nights with the high-flying Darlings, an outstanding Captain Hook, and Peter’s engaging audience-participation, along with a host of other special, magical theater moments. We hope to see you in the audience next year!
