SIDNEY — Senior Acting students from Parkland Secondary School performed an adaptation of Peter Pan for young audiences in School District 63 this week.

On Tuesday, May 7, students from Kindergarten to Grade 4 from Deep Cove Elementary, Sidney School, Cordova Bay Elementary and Prospect Lake Elementary enjoyed seeing their favourite characters in an exciting, action-packed show that relied on audience participation.

The Grade 11 and 12 Parkland students also enjoyed taking on the famous roles and making the storybook characters come alive over the past month of rehearsals.

Narrated by two little stars in the sky, the story followed the adventures of Peter Pan, Wendy and her brothers as they encountered Lost Boys, mermaids, pirates, and of course, clock-eating crocodiles.

The senior acting class will be taking on another major challenge before the end of the school year with student-directed plays.
