While all live events are currently being postponed or canceled, individual participation in the arts can be a satisfying use of your time. Play your instrument, sing, compose, create art, practice your lines of dialogue, dance. Visit a virtual concert, museum, or theatre. Express yourself through the arts! ~Jeffrey Lesser, Interim Supervisor of Arts Education.

Churchill Junior High’s 2020 Drama Club presents:
PETER/WENDY by Jeremy Bloom
In this lyrical, atmospheric interpretation of Peter Pan, Jeremy Bloom strips the familiar story down to its emotional essence. Peter lures Wendy away from her nursery to the magical world of Neverland, where she joins his adventures with Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily, and the menacing Captain Hook. A low-tech, inventive adaptation that pays homage to the darker themes of J. M. Barrie's original, Peter/Wendy will mesmerize audiences.
(Not Disney version) Recommended age: 10+
Seating (extremly limited) on stage, theatre in the round style performance
