Here are a couple images from our production and Neverland:
Mermaids came out tonight to dance, play, sing, and entrap men and lure men them to the bottom of the sea while Pirates and Lost Boys sharpened up their sword fighting skills.
Later, the Pirates tried to tempt Tiger Lily with a cake baked by Captain Hook. Tiger Lily was taken and tied up to Marooner’s Rock while the tide began to rise.
Last night (Tuesday) was the first time where actors and most of the band worked together on songs. For warm ups, actors blended fun and focus together through vocal exercises and ended in creating an amazing calypso (a musical style influenced by jazz that uses improvised vocals and sounds). Clapping, snapping, stomping, and vocals were a few of the “instruments” culminated in the piece. Not often will pirates, lost boys, and other residents get along so well!
A Works Citied page, including links to the original novel and other readings and activities is now available.
Rehearsals for the show begin tomorrow!

I have created a pirate quiz to create a personalized pirate name, purely for fun! The format is slightly inconvenient in that there are four separate quizzes to take The good news is that a partial name can be created, and each quiz will open in a new window. A name is asked before taking each quiz, but even a simple “A” will suffice. There was much difficulty trying to find a free quiz that was even close to what I wanted. And of course I wasn’t going to pirate “free” software 😉
