Renaissance's Peter Pan Begins This Week

3/26/2014

The Renaissance Theater program will present the high flying musical adventure “Peter Pan” beginning this weekend. 

In this magical tale about the boy who refuses to grow up, Peter Pan and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of Wendy, Michael and John Darling. With a sprinkling of pixie dust, Peter and his new friends fly out the nursery window and over London to Never-Never Land. The children experience many wonderful and exciting adventures with the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily's Indian tribe, and Peter's arch enemy, the dastardly pirate Captain Hook.

"A production as complex and as fantastic as Peter Pan brings many theatrical elements to the stage,” commented Brian Hill, Director of Renaissance Theatre.  “Not only will the show have large choreography numbers, a cast of wonderful characters, and beautiful sets and costumes, we are bringing in a professional staging company out of Las Vegas that will allow our characters to fly!  You won't want to miss all that we have in store for you in this magical story!”

The show will take place Friday April 4th at 7:00pm and Saturday April 5th at 1:00pm and 7:00pm at the Dixie Carter Performing Arts and Academic Enrichment Center in Huntingdon, TN.  Tickets for this performance are $15 and can be purchased at www.dixiepac.net.  There will be a Bethel Performance on Thursday April 3rd, which will allow Bethel faculty, staff, and students to receive free admission. 

The show will then move to the Ned Ray McWherter Performing Arts Center in Jackson, TN for performances on April 11th and 12th.  Curtain will open at 7:00pm.  Tickets that weekend will be $10 and can be reserved by calling the Renaissance Office and will be available at the door.
