The cast takes a bow for a very appreciative audience after their performance of Peter Pan last Sunday night.

Pier One Theatre’s youth/teen production of Peter Pan packed the theatre for all performances last weekend. Three more are scheduled for tomorrow through Saturday.
A cast of 14 newly trained young thespians staged the difficult play that has many settings; it’s a performance many consider relatively easy in movies, but nearly impossible on a little stage.
The character of Peter Pan, created by Scottish novelist and playwright J.M. Barrie, is a mischievous boy who can fly and never grows up.
Peter Pan, played by Galen Lyon, spends his never-ending childhood adventuring on the small island of Neverland as the leader of his gang, the Lost Boys.
He interacts with mermaids, Native Americans, fairies, pirates — and occasionally, a few ordinary children from the world outside of Neverland.
The cast is of Pier One’s Pan production includes:
Galen Lyon as Peter Pan; Aria Hill as Nana/Dunce; Dayus Geysbeek as Michael; Indigo Sonneborn as Wendy; Chloe Pleznac as John.
Mr. Darling (aka Captain Hook), is played by Jake Marquard; Other performers include Rachael Seneff, Poppy Smith, Jade Thomas, Lawson Alexson-Wells, Johnny Hamilton, Simon Lopez, Eleanor Sweeney and Emmet Wilkinson.
Actors range in age from 7 to 14.
