Come see the singing and acting talent of more than 50 Snoqualmie Valley 6th – 8th grade students as Chief Kanim Middle School brings Disney’s PETER PAN JR. to the stage starting Thursday, June 4, 2015 at 7PM. Four performances are on tap through Saturday, June 6th.
The 70-minute musical, designed for middle-school aged performers, is based on the play by J.M. Barrie and the 1953 Disney film. The Chief Kanim Middle School cast consists of about 63 students led by director, Dorothy Pierce.
Parents were able to view a dress rehearsal of the production Wednesday evening and say it is “fantastic – really funny and sweet” and filled with “great songs and beautiful costumes.”
Performances of Disney’s PETER PAN JR. are open to the public at Chief Kanim Middle School June 4th, 5th & 6th at 7PM, with an additional matinée on Saturday, June 6th at 2:30PM. Admission is $8.
Peter Pan JR. is the story of the boy who wouldn’t grow up and the girl who has to. After finding his shadow in the Darling family nursery, Peter teaches Wendy, Michael and John how to fly and sweeps them off to Never Land, where they meet Lost Boys, mermaids, indians and, of course, pirates. If the children are ever to return home, Peter must defeat Captain Hook with the help of Tinker Bell and her fairy friends.
Peter Pan JR. features classic songs from the 1953 film such as, “You Can Fly,” “Following the Leader” and “The Second Star to the Right,” as well as songs from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and the 2008 Disney film Tinker Bell.
