Peter Pan Jr. to debut in new SHS Performing Arts Center
Posted on 10/25/2017 7:29:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- Get ready to fly away to Neverland in Seguin High School's new Performing Arts Center. The stage will officially come to life with this year's theater production of Disney's Peter Pan Jr. The production is described as a modern version of the "timeless tale about a boy who wouldn't grow up, with no flying required."
Excited about opening up the curtains at the new auditorium is Theater Arts Teacher Lydia Robles. Robles says not only is the theatre group offering free shows to local elementary school children but it will host two performances for the public.
"It's a wonderful new facility. We've got lights that are state-of-the-art. So our stage is larger. We can accommodate a bigger size audience. So we're really excited, our biggest house is about 817 students at a time and so we'll be seeing all of our elementary students. Being able to see and interact with a crowd of 800 young students is quite exciting. We're looking forward to that too," said Robles.
Robles says the new space will also allow for the department to welcome children from Ball Early Childhood Center, other private schools and middle school drama students.
Robles says although there are still things to learn with the new theater, the program is excited about its new home and encourages the public to come out and support the students.
"The population in our show, we've got about -- I think we're at 35 total, up to 40 and 50 when we're looking at the students that will be helping us -- (the) house crew -- those that'll be greeting our community members as they come in to see the show and seating them, handing out programs. We have a large amount of students that are involved. We have about half of our cast that's brand new to us. So that's exciting because as we're in a new facility, we're seeing growth in the students that would like to participate and that's wonderful. We are excited and things are getting more and more polished. You know there's always those little kinks that you still got to work out. We got a little list to go over, but it's looking really good. The kids are really energized. They're excited to see the students and are performing in this awesome new space," said Robles.
Public performances of Peter Pan Jr. are scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at the SHS Performing Arts Center located on the SHS campus. Tickets are $8 a person. There is no cost for children 5 years and under.
