Peter Pan flew into FHS last week to delight the audiences.
This production is loaded with special effects that include: technical effects, lighting, multimedia and a Flight Rail installed especially for this production by ZFX Productions.
Of special delight to the audience is the incorporation of PUPPETS as Characters. And not just any puppets: some 12 feet tall and some 12 feet long.
Juniors, Summer Bockart and Madelline Rhew have had the amazing experience of helping construct and build the ICONIC role of the Crocodile that haunts Captain Hook to life for this production. These students “navigate this 12 foot long puppet with wheels/pulleys and various devices. Bockart and Rhew receive audience applause the moment the croc’s eyes are visible. Both say they are having the time of their life!
Other Puppeteers are Senior Lucinda Culver as the Never Bird who protects Peter and mesmerizes the audience.
There are many more surprises: Nana the dog, a dingy and a Ship. Captain Hook navigates the Pirates, fights the Indians and seeks out the PAN
The theatre department wants to thank FHS Art – Jan Nemitz and her AP students who helped to make a giant skull for the boat.
The Crew is lead by Brian Ciancialo who manages the technical aspects of sets and lights and Sarah Chew who did the MULTI media and the Sound.
Thanks to Autumn Bockart and Pepper Smith for helping with the tickets.
Thanks also to parent flight crew dad and of course the costume moms lead by Amy Tones.
“Peter Pan is played by Caleb Petty and flies high with Audrey McKee who plays Wendy. On their way to Neverland they fly through the city of London straight on to morning! Don’t Miss this one!” Powdrell said.
