Peter Pan helps bring live theater back to Palos Verdes High

Drama students at Palos Verdes High School will bring the fictional world of Peter Pan to the stage when their production of the Tony Award-winning play “Peter and the Starcatcher” begins Friday, Nov.

Drama director Nicole Thompson said the play is the first live production of the school’s drama program since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It’s an ensemble where all 16 actors are on stage for almost the entire show,” Thompson said. “It’s beautiful and the show has such magic.”

The PVHS drama students did their best to keep the dramatic magic alive during the pandemic. This spring he filmed the musical “Urintown” and edited it into an online presentation. And, for their canceled 2020 production of “Crazy For You,” some students and PVHS alumni put on an abridged version of that show last summer.

But, ‘Peter and the Starcatcher’ is its first full live production. And students said there’s nothing quite like being physically back on stage and performing in front of a live audience.

PVHS Junior, Neela David, who plays Molly, said being involved in a live production is like building a family.

“It just feels so real, and it’s so irresistible every time,” David said. “It just makes you feel so alive; That’s one of the best things about theatre.”

“Peter and the Starcatcher” is based on the book series written by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. His 2004 series was based on the turn-of-the-century works of J.M. Barrie about Peter Pan, a mischievous young boy who never grows old and has the power to fly.
