H-F L.I.T.E. presents Peter/Wendy

In its first live performance in the new H-F Performing Arts Center, H-F's Leaders In Theatre Ensemble will present Peter/Wendy on Friday, Aug. 20 (7 p.m.) & Saturday, Aug. 21 (2 p.m. & 7 p.m.).

In this lyrical, atmospheric interpretation of Peter Pan, playwright Jeremy Bloom strips the familiar story down to its emotional essence. Peter (Avery Calhoon) lures Wendy (Amy Ward) away from her nursery to the magical world of Neverland, where she joins his adventures with Tinkerbell (Grace Opyd), Tiger Lily (Anly Flores), and the menacing Captain Hook (Marissa Diaz). Directed by Mr. Willard-Rose, this production also features Jayla Watts (Mrs. Darling/Smee); Zosha Schall (The Lost); Sean Haggerty (The Lost); and Jazmin Rhodes (Mermaid). Tickets ($5/student/senior; $10/adult) will be available at the door and in advance at:
