Beloved Tale of PETER PAN Comes to Life

PETER PAN is taking the stage at Baldwin Wallace University this fall. Join the boy who wouldn’t grow up, Wendy and Tinkerbell as they journey through Neverland on a quest to defeat the iconic Captain Hook.

PETER PAN flies into BW's William Allman Theatre on October 10-13 at 7:30 p.m. and October 13-14 at 2 p.m. Written in 1904 by J.M. Barrie, PETER PAN’s characters were originally derived from short stories that Barrie used to tell to the children of a friend.

From Barrie's original play in 1904, several new versions came to fruition over the years that include novels, movies and musicals. BW's creative retelling of the classic story is sure to delight the whole family -- bringing together a cast of talented students with a creative team of students and professionals, and featuring characters never seen onstage in this production.

Guest Director Michael Oatman is only the second Playwright in Residence in the history of Karamu House in Cleveland. An award winning playwright, his works have been seen in a number of venues across the country.

The show is assistant directed by Rhiannon Thomas ‘13, a senior in the BW Theatre & Dance Department, who has been involved in several aspects of theatre over the years from acting in BW’s February production of Mr. Marmalade to serving as the production manager of the Student Directed One Acts in fall 2011.

PETER PAN’s scenic design is by Laura Carlson-Tarantowski, whose work has been seen in a variety of theatres throughout the area, and on the BW stage in 2011’s Don Giovanni and Titanic.

Costumes for the show are designed by Jamie Farkas ‘13, a BW senior studying costume design who recently spent the summer working at the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival.

Pat Hayes ’11 is handling the lighting design. The 2011 BW graduate has designed for a variety of BW shows including the first and second New Play Festival and Crimes of the Heart.

Tickets are priced at $10/person; with half price senior citizen and (non-BW) student tickets $5/person. To purchase tickets, please visit the box office at Kleist Center or call 440-826-2240.
