‘Peter Pan Jr.’ flies into Stanly County Agri-Civic Center

The Talent Company will present Disney’s “Peter Pan Jr.” at the Stanly County Agri-Civic Center beginning Saturday night.

The youth theatre group will offer shows at 7 p.m. Saturday and Oct. 26-27 and 3 p.m. Sunday and Oct. 28.

“Our production is going great,” said David Kilde, youth director for the production.

“We have a ton of new kids and excited returning members,” Kilde added. “Our new musical director has been amazing and fun to work with. We are super excited to be on the much larger Agri-Civic Center stage.”

Kilde says the show is the classic story of Peter Pan.

“Wendy and her brothers leave their nursery to join Peter Pan in his adventures in Neverland,” Kilde said. “While they’re there, they will encounter pirates, mermaids, Indians and more than a couple of important life lessons.”

Tickets are $5 each and may be bought from a cast member or at the door.
