They Won’t Grow Up

Murray Avenue Elementary School presents its second annual school musical, “Peter Pan, Or the Boy Who Would Not Grow Up”.
In two weeks of intensive rehearsals, KJK Productions, a professional theater company hired by the PTA, with the help of some 80 parent volunteers, has once again turned a rag-tag group of 160 children into a polished (well, sort of) group of actors, dancers and singers. That’s right, 160 children, from grades 2-5, divided into two separate casts, each giving two performances.
Cast A will go on stage at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday and 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, and the curtains will rise on Cast B at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday and 3:00 p.m. on Sunday. Performances last only an hour, with no intermission. This year, Murray’s wonderful old auditorium sports a new lighting and sound system — there are no “bad seats” in the house! Tickets can be purchased at the door on the day of the performance. Whether you have children in the play or not, you will thoroughly enjoy this event.
