The 7th Annual High School Summer Musical Theatre Experience Presents PETER PAN

Description: Peter_Pan_picture

The Nathan H. Wilson Center for the Arts and The Artist Series are proud to present the High School Summer Musical Theatre Experience, which provides the opportunity for local area high school students to work hands-on with some of the highest recognized local and regional theatre professionals at the Wilson Center for the Arts.  This year, participants will perform Peter Pan from July 27th – August 5th for six performances only at the Wilson Center for the Arts on Florida State College at Jacksonville’s South Campus (11901 Beach Blvd). 

Peter Pan, like its namesake, is a tale which never ages.  Children and adults alike have all fallen under the spell of Neverland, a place where children can fly and exciting adventures happen every day.  The ever-popular characters are still there - Peter Pan, Wendy, John, Michael, the dastardly Captain Hook and his sidekick Smee, Tiger Lily, the Lost Boys, pirates, Indians, Tinkerbell, Nana the family dog and, of course, that scary crocodile.

This year, several students will have the opportunity to soar to new heights thanks to the expertise of Zealous Flying Effects (ZFX).  Watch this video to see what we have in store for you this summer at the Wilson Center!

Peter Pan, published by Samuel French, is now one of the most popular shows in their catalogue and has garnered its fair share of Tony awards to prove it.  The musical version of Peter Pan was adapted from the play by Sir James M. Barrie.  Lyrics are written by Carolyn Leigh, Music by Mark “Moose” Chaplin, additional music by Jule Styne and additional lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green.
