We went to see Peter Pan at the Theatre In the Park the other night. It was an excellent performance with kids playing the majority of the cast. We packed a picnic dinner, took our lawn chairs and settled in for a nice evening of entertainment.

Holan and Kristie took turns playing with Samantha in the open area behind the seating area.

This is the stage before the performance. They only used one set during the entire show. Several people had problems when the show transferred to Never-Neverland and the pirate ship. Everyone felt like they were still in the Darling home even with the lighting they used.

Before Peter Pan started a troupe of kids came out and performed several songs from Mary Poppins. They were very good.

The flying scenes were well done and the kids looked calm and comfortable as they were lifted and flown across the stage.
