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.
children involved with CAST workshops meet regularly at the Hailey Public
Library for drama classes. A dramatic production is the outcome of all
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.
performances on Saturday are free of charge. Children must be accompanied
by an adult.
interested in joining CAST may contact Harakay at 788-5977.
