November 11, 12, 13 were busy days for some of our classmates, who worked hard in the weeks leading up to present the play “Peter Pan & Wendy.” The show was directed by senior Jared Hettrick and junior Meg Duka, and starred Lauren Bentley, Melody McPherson, Gabriel Moraga, Aaron Council, and Chance Rigdon (just to name a few) along with a pit band which included students Cheryl Gaughn, Matt Donnelly, Amanda Jackson, and Craig Salmon.
“Jared is a great composer, and conductor. It was an honor to play music that he composed. The cast really meshed well together and had a ton of fun,” Salmon says. Salmon also tweeted throughout Saturday and Sunday’s shows, giving funny commentary and backstage information about everything from costumes to the hilarious script.
“All children, except one, grow up. This fall, neither did we. We learned to embrace our long abandoned childhood and rediscovered the joy of youth, playtime, and innocence,” Hettrick says of the show and its cast.
