Nerves and excitement were felt as the curtain was raised and the production began. Shouts of joy and praise were given to Peter, as he flew on to the stage. Compared with his counterpart, Captain Hook only received boos when he made his first appearance on stage. The actors brought the characters to life with their well learned lines, great humor, and interaction with the audience.
One time when Captain Hook sauntered onto stage, his character received boos, but he played off them by stating that, little children should only be seen and not heard. Peter was witty and clever too. When he lost his shadow, he said his shadow was dead because it would not stick to him.
Overall the production was a great family activity, filled with smart humor, daring sword fights, and actual flying. Dixie High’s students performed the play with flying colors. They made it fun to be part of the audience and to share in the story of Peter Pan.
Their next performance will be coming February 27th through March 3rd, with no performances on Sunday. They will be performing the musical “You’re a good man Charlie Brown.” For more information and tickets you can call 435-673-4682.
