Revisit Never, NeverLand as the cast from Caryl Crane Children’s Theater presents “Peter and Wendy” at BGSU Fireland’s McBride Auditorium. It is the story of Peter Pan as told through the eyes of Wendy where Wendy is both character and narrator. The play is adapted and directed by Brian Marshall where he makes Wendy the star.
Marshall thins that everyone will enjoy the play on different levels. Children will see it as an adventure, and adults, will identify with the fact that all must accept the change into adulthood. Though it’s not a musical, “Peter and Wendy” is a play with music.
“It’s a beautiful grown-ups perspective on Peter Pan. The Peter Pan that everyone knows and love,” said Marshall. “It has something for every age whether you are 3 or 103”
Caryl Crane (1908-1999) has been described as a visionary. She was never one to sit and wait for someone to come up with an idea…she had an idea of he own, embraced it, and made it happen. She founded the children’s theater in her name to fulfill a life long dream. She believed the slogan, “Children Are Our Future” and was dedicated to giving children the opportunity to explore and discover who they are through theater and performance. She opened this opportunity to children who lived in the area who were between the ages of 10 and 18.
So take yourself back to the days of Captain Hook and Pixie Dust and place where you never had to grow up.
It should be a magical time.
