Itís a pirateís life

Youngsters stage adaptation of ĎPeter Paní

Express Arts Editor

The nexStage Theatre in Ketchum will be buzzing with energy Saturday. Thatís because it will be the occasion for both the opening and closing performances of a blockbuster production of "Never Never Wonder Wonder Land" by the Childrenís After School Theater Workshop.

The performances take place at 1 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Members of the cast of "Never Never Wonder Wonder Land": standing, from left, Will Johnson, C. Gordon Knight, Brendan Freund, Gene Fairbrother and kneeling, Rune Haavik and Cache Duininck.

Dozens of children age 7 and up will participate in Nancy Harakayís adaptation of "Peter Pan" by J.M. Barrie. Some of the young thespians include Maddie Cordovano playing Peter Pan, Barrett Brown as Tinker Bell and C. Gordon Knight as Captain Hook. Adam Bohrer and Jessica Bohner are the assistant directors for the production.

The children involved with CAST workshops meet regularly at the Hailey Public Library for drama classes. A dramatic production is the outcome of all CAST workshops.

"The performances are by children and for children. These talented kids really put their hearts into everything they do during the workshops, be it improvisation, theater games or a performance. The thing I am most impressed with is the support and respect they give each other," director Harakay said.

Both performances on Saturday are free of charge. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Anyone interested in joining CAST may contact Harakay at 788-5977.
