Welcome!

Welcome to the Gunnison High School Drama Club’s production of Peter Pan. This show represents the culmination of hours of rehearsal time with the biggest undertaking of a production yet.  Elaborate choreography with, at times, all 34 members of the cast on stage at once was a new addition to this production.

Directors Susan Barrett and Nancy Santarella’s vision of this production integrates the music, movement and acting that is as ambitious as professional versions of this show.  Their vision and experience along with the expertise of Alyce Meredith, Mathew Coronado, Jeanene Nelson, and Katelyn Barrett will have you thoroughly entertained this evening. The hard work of the students in the cast and the crew, support from parents, staff and community members have made tonight’s performance possible.  Thank you to all and enjoy the show!

CAST BIOGRAPHIES (Alphabetical Order by FIRST name)

Ben "The Flipper" Wiens: 11th-grader Ben has appeared in many shows prior to this production: multiple movies,  Gunnison Arts Center productions, as well as GHS musicals in the past. Wishing for his own special talents like Peter Pan’s, he would really like to be able to fly as well. Living forever would also be just grand! Some of Ben’s special talents include gymnastics and singing really, really high. Ben would like to, “thank the lovely audience for supporting our drama club! Hope the songs we sing don't just become ‘Distant Melodies’.”
