Peter Pan Flying in to the Auditorium October 25-28

Performances of Peter Pan will be Thursday through Saturday, October 25-26-27 at 8 p.m. with a Sunday matinee performance on October 28 at 2 p.m. Temple High's annual musical is normally performed in the spring but was moved to the fall this year because renovations affecting the fine arts area will begin November 1. Tickets for the musical will be the same as in previous years — $10 in advance, $15 at the door and $20 for reserved seating. Reserved seats are only available online and the reserved seating area includes the first six rows of the center sections.

Students from the cast and production staff will be selling advanced tickets. Tickets are also available online (with a 50¢ convenience charge per ticket) at

The version being performed in Temple is the original 1954 Broadway production, which starred Mary Martin as Peter. A 1979 Broadway revival starred Sandy Duncan, while a 1990 revival featured Olympic gymnast Cathy Rigby. NBC broadcast this version as "Peter Pan Live!" in 2014.

Based on J.M. Barrie's classic tale, Peter Pan is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. This high-flying Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years.

Peter (Sierra Amalbert) and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children (Rebecca Alley, Michael Rodriguez and Nash Belson) late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with the Lost Boys, a ticking crocodile, a fierce native tribe (with Princess Olivia Cabrera) and a band of bungling pirates headed by the villainous Captain Hook (Sean Mann).

The musical features the iconic songs, "I'm Flying," "I've Gotta Crow," "I Won't Grow Up" and "Never Never Land," and a rousing story full of magic, warmth and adventure. The actors will actually be flying with flying illusions created for the Temple High stage by ZFX Flying Effects.
