Laurin Middle School Students Sing and Dance in 'Peter Pan Jr.'

April 15, 2015

More than 100 Laurin Middle School students are taking their singing, dancing and acting skills to the stage in their production of "Peter Pan Jr." on April 21 and 22 at 6 p.m. in the school's gym.

Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie's play, Disney's Peter Pan Jr. is a modern version of the tale about a boy who wouldn't grow up. Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and the infamous pirate Captain Hook. The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs including "Following the Leader," "You Can Fly," "The Second Star to the Right" and "Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me."

The production will be held in the school's gym at 13601 NE 97th Ave., Vancouver. The backdrop for the set was painted by award-winning artist and PHS senior Keeley Prestwich, who attended Laurin as a middle schooler. Admission to the play is free. Laurin Middle School serves 5th-8th graders in the Battle Ground Public Schools district.
