The Skyview High School Theater Department is presenting an adaptation of "Peter Pan" Dec. 14-16 in the school theater.

Performances begin at 7 p.m. on Dec. 14 and 15 and 2 p.m. on Dec. 16. All seats are $5.

This adaptation features five flying actors. A condensed version of the show was performed for students at four Heights schools on Monday, Dec. 4. It is being directed by Skyview teacher Coul Hill. Student director is Grace Shroyer and assistant directors are Hannah Bauman and Taelar Van Luchene.

The play captures the magic and charm of the story of the Darling children, who love to hear of Peter Pan’s adventures during his visits through the open window of the nursery.

One night after Nana has taken his shadow and Wendy has sewn it back on, Peter Pan and Tinker Bell whisk the children off to Neverland to be part of the adventures. Wendy, John and Michael become friends with the Lost Boys and Princess Tiger Lily and Wendy becomes everyone’s mother.

When the evil Captain Hook captures Wendy and the Lost Boys, Peter Pan comes to their rescue. Together with the ticking crocodile, Peter Pan puts Captain Hook in his place and returns the Darling children to their home.
