Peter Pan flies into Hershey

Once upon a time, there was a boy who would never grow up, and spent his time gallivanting about NeverLand with Pirates and Indians. Now, the timeless tale of Peter Pan is coming to Hershey High School March 1,2, and 3.

Since December, HHS Theatre has been tirelessly working to bring this show to life. Directed by Michelle  O’Brian and Josh Yentsch, and comprising more than 50 members of the student body, Peter Pan is truly the result of community spirit and teamwork.

Students have had a huge hand in every aspect of the show, including set design, stage crew, lights and costumes, and the orchestra. There’s even a special group of students dedicated to helping Peter Pan fly!

Of course, in a show this grand and adventurous, it truly takes a village. Paige Rippon of the local One Broadway Dance Centre choreographed the dances. Many local businesses and organizations, such as the Hershey Rotary, also generously donated time and resources to this production.

Peter Pan truly showcases some of Hershey High’s most talented students. Senior Cameron Brown holds the role of Peter Pan,  and junior Patrick Gavazzi plays his arch nemesis, Captain Hook! Paige Randall, a senior and Downtown Hershey Association Intern, plays Wendy Darling.

Take your family on a high flying adventure this weekend with Peter Pan! Tickets are available online at www.hershey.k12.pa.us or at the door before the start of the show, at 550 Homestead Road. The show will be at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and there is a 1:30 p.m matinee on Saturday. Bring everyone you know, and of course, a little faith, trust, and pixie dust!
