Community theater is alive and well this weekend

LSt’s ‘For Peter Pan On Her 70th Birthday’ opens tonight
Sept. 27-29 and Oct. 4-6 at 7:30 p.m. and Sept. 30 at 2:30 pm.
A play that deals with family dynamics, growing old, and staying young, we meet Ann portrayed by Claudia Galup. She and her siblings are with their father during his final moments. When Ann thinks of her father, she immediately remembers playing Peter Pan in her hometown theater in Iowa. This piece is a loving look at a family’s view of life, death, and the allure of never growing up. The cast includes Claudia Galup as Ann, John Brincefield as John, Bill Reilly as Michael, John Bowlby as Jim, Jennifer Hubbard as Wendy, and Gary Thornburg as Father. It is produced by St. Thomas Players and directed by Heather Wilson-Bowlby in collaboration with the Center for Faith and the Arts.
