This year's production, Peter Pan, touted as being the "one children's show that adults have no trouble enjoying," promises to be another spectacle as it features the combination of technical flying prowess, seasoned actors, an award-winning production team, live orchestra, and a host of talented singing and dancing children, will make the musical an event not to be missed this season. Peter Pan, is the beloved children's story written by novelist JM Barrie and set to music by Broadway legend Jule Styne and Mark Charlap. In this story, Peter Pan is the boy "who won't grow up."
Accompanied by Tinker Bell, Peter Pan meets Wendy, John and Michael in their nursery while searching for his shadow. He teaches them how to fly and journeys with them to the magical Neverland. There they join the Tribe of the Lost Boys, meet Indians and battle pirates, led by the notorious Captain Hook.
Peter Pan features a Cacique-laden cast and crew, including Jerrylee David in the title role of Peter Pan, well-known local actor Kearn Samuel as Captain Hook, and a host of talented singing and dancing children in the roles of the Darling Children and the Lost Boys. Louis McWilliams will direct, and Cacique award winner Jessel Murray, who recently directed the National Steel Symphony Orchestra at NAPA, will conduct the live orchestral accompaniment. Cacique award-winning costume designer Paulette Alfred-Guy-James, scenic designer Sarah Morris and Cacique award winning choreographer Adele Bynoe round out the production.
