Legacy Traditional School is taking flight for their annual musical spectacular.
The charter school will present “Peter Pan” on two weekends, beginning Friday. The junior version of the musical features seventh grader Tanner Webster as the titular character, who refuses to grow up and lives in perpetual boyhood in Neverland with Lost Boys.
He is mischievous, boastful and, yes, can fly. Eventually, quite a few characters acquire the ability to fly, making this production an adventure itself.
Audrey Duguay, an eighth grader, stars as Wendy Darling, who does a good deed for Peter and ends being guided with her two younger brothers to Neverland. Fourth grader Talon Barth is Michael Darling, and Ethan Hodges, a fifth grader, plays John Darling.
Leading a gang of pirates in Neverland is the vengeful, crocodile-fearing Captain Hook, played by eighth grader Esteban Abundis. Aboard the Jolly Roger with him is boatswain Smee, played by eighth grader Jacob Snoddy.
Eighth grader Lindsey Coms narrates the story. The show is directed by Michelle Wagner.
Performances are Feb. 23-24 and March 2-3 at 6 p.m. There are also matinees on Feb. 24 and March 3 at 2 p.m.
Tickets purchased online start at $5 and go up to $20 depending on seating priority. Tickets can be purchased at https://shop.legacytraditional.org/az-maricopa/. At the door, general admission tickets will be $8.
