Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

Peter Pan

Peter Pan watches as Wendy, Michael and John fly with happy thoughts, in Peter Pan - Marin Shakespeare 1996As our first non-Shakespeare play, we hoped Peter Pan would be accepted by our audiences. We have to admit that added a few sly Shakespeare ad-libs. (“Lord what fools these pirates be!” Peter muttered, for example.) A fantastic score was composed by Billie Cox and two beautiful mermaids (teenage apprentices in glittering costumes) sang a hauntingly beautiful tune to help set the tone for Never Land.

 

 

 

Hook and Peter Pan fight, Marin Shakespeare - 1996 

 

For this production, we purchased metal box truss, which was necessary for creating the flying sequences. Working outdoors, we had no proscenium stage ready-built from which to secure cables. ZFX, a professional flying company, came in to ensure our flying was both safe and artistically stunning. With Puck’s acrobatic pole, the trapezes for our fairies, and Peter and the children’s flying, Bob Currier became a master Rigger. Ensuring all this equipment would be safe for the vigorous stunts performed on it was nerve-wracking, and we enlisted the help of every professional rigger we could find. Getting through the run with no injuries was a major achievement.
