South Cooperative Theater Presented Peter Pan Jr.

South Cooperative Theater, comprised of over sixty third, fourth and fifth graders from South School, presented Disney’s Peter Pan Jr. during the first weekend of March at the West Middle School auditorium. Under the direction of many South School staff and local theater professionals, students worked as a team throughout the winter to create a heartwarming production that was enjoyed by huge audiences of all ages. Pirates, indians, fairies, mermaids, Lost Boys and of course a ticking crocodile joined Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Captain Hook and Wendy, Michael and John in their adventure in Neverland.

During rehearsals, students learned about stage direction and blocking, developed their solo and group singing skills, learned choreography and built new friendships across grade levels. Students and families have commented that this theater experience has helped the cast members to build self-confidence both on stage and in the classroom; to take risks and stretch their abilities in a safe and nurturing environment; and to find a place where they really feel they can express themselves.
