PUTNEY >> Neverland is a place where children don't ever have to grow up. No jobs. No responsibilities. Just adventure after adventure in a land inhabited by pirates, lost boys, mermaids and, in this interpretation, a band of wild cats! It is fitting that 7th and 8th graders at The Grammar School in Putney are working with director Rebecca Waxman to create a fresh take on this beloved story for their annual musical production, because Pan explores the same terrain these middle schoolers are crossing now: that wild and thorny territory between youth and adulthood.
Peter Pan, produced by Alli Lubin, will run at The Grammar School on Friday (7 p.m.), Saturday (2 p.m. and 7 p.m.) and Sunday (2 p.m.) April 8, 9 and 10. Call 802-387-5364 for seat reservations which are highly recommended. Tickets at the door are $10 for adults, $5 for children and alumnae or $25 for families. Children, and children-at-heart, will be captivated by the production. "Peter Pan" is based on the script by Frederick Gaines from the book by J.M. Barrie, produced by special arrangement with Plays for Young Audiences.
