Since 1982 the theatre company, founded by husband-and-wife team Elise and Steve Seyfried, has been producing the couple’s cleverly designed two-actor versions of classic tales. "Peter Pan" has been one of their most popular shows. The play first appeared in 1984 and has been repeated several times through the years.
All the familiar characters take the stage as the action unfolds: the Darling children Wendy and John, Captain Hook and Mister Smee, Tiger Lily, Tootles the Lost Boy, Nana the dog and even the crocodile. The fast-paced, one-hour production is liberally spiced with the lively sense of humor that has been the hallmark of all RSCT shows.
Tickets to "Peter Pan" are $10. They can be purchased by phone at 302-227-6766 or at www.rehobothchildrenstheatre.org. Epworth United Methodist Church is at 19285 Holland Glade Road, Rehoboth Beach. The church is just off Route 1 between Tomato Sunshine Market and Seaside Outlets. There is plenty of free parking.
