Peter Pan Jr. is based on the play by J.M. Barrie and the 1953 Disney film. TUAC’s Summer Theatre cast contains approximately 50 students led by Erin Clarke, Director and Sarah Jordan, Assistant Director.
Peter Pan JR. is the story of the boy who wouldn’t grow up and the girl who has to.

If the children are ever to return home, Peter must defeat Captain Hook (James Logan) and Smee (MacKenzie Faulkner) with the help of Tinker Bell (Emily Nebb) and her fairy friends (Ashlynn Anderson, Peyton Chapman, Madalyn Clarke, Madason Clarke, Rachel Jordan, Kit Logan, Carson Parks). Other cast members include Princess Tiger Lily (Lily Logan), Chief Tiger Bamboo (Luke Haney), Mrs. Darling (Hannah Hightower), Mr Darling (Jacob Gassett), Nana (Mea Love) and the star/cloud dancers (Annabelle Anderson, Carmen Barron, Brennan Lowery, Grace Matson, Heaven Moore, Kate Morgan). Peter Pan JR. features classic songs from the 1953 film such as, “You Can Fly,” “Following the Leader” and “The Second Star to the Right” as well as songs from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and the 2008 Disney film Tinker Bell.
