Youth Summer Camp

Peter Pan

A Musical Adventure

https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4299693

Classes: July 8 – Aug 9, 2019

Monday – Thursday 10 am – 1 pm

Performances: Aug 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18

Camp Director: Billy Hetherington

“Peter Pan – A Musical Adventure” will show at Willits Community Theatre from August 9 through 18, featuring an all-children cast in a grand-scale production of the classic fantasy tale. The show follows the boy who refuses to grow up and instead journeys into a rich world of the imagination. Director Billy Hetherington leads the cast of 31 child actors in a musical rendition of Peter Pan’s journey with the Lost Boys to the island of Neverland where they encounter mermaids, fairies, Native Americans and pirates–including the sinister Captain Hook.
    In a show that also becomes what it’s all about—kids finding their power of expression—Hetherington says the greatest triumphs come with the child actors discovering themselves in a world of their own creation on stage. With nearly 20 years experience teaching theater arts to children, Hetherington says, “I’m constantly impressed with the young talents and their intuitive strengths. In this show, they’re catching onto it, what it means to have fun and play, and also face the onset of growing up.”
    Performances will be on Friday August 9 at 7:30pm, Saturday August 10 at 7:30pm, Sunday August 11 at 2pm, Thursday August 15 at 7:30pm, Friday August 16 at 7:30pm, Saturday August 17 at 7:30pm and a final matinee Sunday August 18 at 2pm. Advance tickets for all shows are $10 and available in person at Mazahar, 38 S. Main St., Willits; online at brownpapertickets.com; or by phone 24/7 at 1-800-838-3006.

I and You: October 4 – 20, 2019
Playwright: Lauren Gunderson
Director: Kelly Kesey
One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline’s door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt
Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, an urgent assignment from their high school English teacher. Homebound due
to illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is
athletic, sensitive, and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this seemingly
mundane poetry project unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. The play is an
ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.
