Twenty four years ago, I played Peter in a production of Peter Pan at the Little Theatre of Jamestown. It was the role of a lifetime and I had the time of my life. This month, a whole new generation of folks are experiencing the magic of mounting a production at Jamestown Community College. I went to opening night, expecting the show to be a little shaky, based on the rehearsals I had seen and photographed… But I was pleasantly surprised to find it is rock solid.
For me, the story of Peter Pan is the story of what all childhood should be: imaginative, creative, and outdoors. In my current job at Audubon (Neverland) I get to encourage children to be “lost boys” (and girls) all the time – exploring nature and getting connected to our beautiful planet. In this regard, I’ve never stopped being Peter Pan!
If you have never seen a live production of Peter Pan and you live anywhere closeby, treat yourself to this one! Click here for show times and ticket information.
Then, of course, after the show – take your inner child out to the woods for a little exploration of your local Neverland.
