THEATER | "Peter/Wendy" 

This Friday, curtains go up on "Peter/Wendy," a student-acted show directed by Leah Stacy and Shawnda Urie. In this sparsely-staged, atmospheric adaptation, playwright Jeremy Bloom draws from the original source material for Peter Pan — J.M. Barrie's "Peter and Wendy" and "The Little White Bird" — to create an interpretation with familiar names, places, and happenings, but one that is distinctly darker than the Disney cartoon imagery familiar to most. Roberts Wesleyan College's theater program staged James Forsyth's adaptation of "The Screwtape Letters" in the fall of 2014, and many of the same cast members are featured again in "Peter/Wendy." Jeremy Bloom will be in attendance for both performances and will host a talkback for any interested audience members after each show.

Roberts Wesleyan's Department of Music & Performing Arts will perform "Peter/Wendy" on Friday, March 20, and Saturday, March 21, in the College's Cultural Life, 2301 Westside Drive. 7:30 p.m. on Friday; 2 p.m. on Saturday. $5-$10.
