Northwest Nazarene University’s Department of Music will present the original Mary Martin Broadway production of “Peter Pan” March 7, 8 and 9 in the Brandt Center’s Swayne Auditorium.

NNU chair of the music department Dr. Barry Swanson states “This is NNU’s centennial year, and we wanted to celebrate with the biggest musical production in our history. Peter Pan is certainly that. The Las Vegas firm “Flying by Foy” has installed rigging to facilitate the flying of Peter and the children; the set is the biggest and most dramatic, and the cast is outstanding.”

Peter Pan, played by Jana DeSimone (Laurie in NNU’s 2010 Oklahoma), is delightful as Peter Pan, the boy who refuses to grow up. Peter loves to sneak into the home of the Darling family to listen to Mrs. Darling, Alexandra Jarrat of Nampa read bedtime stories. Caught in the act, he convinces the three Darling children to fly, with him to Neverland where he lives with a troop of lost boys. Big sister Wendy, Jordan Hazen of Eagle, and her brothers, Aiden and Jordan Shuck, of Nampa fly away to Neverland where they will do battle with the not-so-fierce pirates led by Captain Hook played by Boise native BJ Howard, (last year’s Don Quixote in Man of La Mancha), and befriend a strange band of Indians led by the Indian princess Tiger Lily, Jackie Presnell of Meridian.

Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on March 7, 8 and 9. Tickets are available through the NNU Brandt Center Box Office or the NNU Department of Music. Ticket prices are $10 or $8 seniors and students; family and group rates are available upon request by calling 467-8795.
