Wellington Ballet Theatre To Stage ‘Peter Pan’ At WHS

The Wellington Ballet Theatre will present its original production of Peter Pan on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 11 at 2 p.m. at the Wellington High School theater.

The original ballet is based off J.M. Barrie’s beloved tale featuring the boy who will never grow up and his journey to Neverland with Wendy, John, Michael and Tinker Bell. The ballet was conceptualized by Wellington Ballet Theatre’s own Melissa Waters, who also did choreography and staging, with artistic direction by Rocky Duvall and scenery and art design by Chris Gay. The experience will be magical, and young children are invited and encouraged to attend.

Wellington Ballet Theatre is grateful to its sponsors for their support: the Village of Wellington, Dance Arts Conservatory, Lightning Videos, Seasons Women’s Care, Floridian Community Bank, Dr. Michael Bruck and Wellington Pediatrics, Dr. James Starman and the Center for Bone & Joint Surgery of the Palm Beaches, Jet Show Stable and Charles Schwab.
