ABOUT THE SHOW:
From 1953 to 1974, the Olde Player’s Barn on SR 303 brought theatre to life in Peninsula. For the first time since 2019, Wandering Aesthetics will once again bring theatre back to the Spicy Lamb Farm’s Player’s Barn.
Based on the J.M. Barrie’s classic, ‘Peter Pan’ is an educational youth experience in which the young actors work as an ensemble to devise a performance, under the guidance of Wandering Aesthetics.
Summit Artspace is interested in the many ways in which BIPOC+ artists impact our communities through their art. One artist will be selected to receive a $1,000 stipend to support the creation of a solo exhibition in Summit Artspace’s Horizon Gallery. Click here to apply.
