Neverland

PeterPan

From my sketchbook. Scenes from the Washington Waldorf School end-of-year senior class production of Peter Pan two years ago. It was terrific—both exciting and hilarious. Captain Hook was played by a tiny fierce blonde. I am a fan of school plays, even those not featuring my own children. But this was an especially significant production, because the class had lost a beloved member in an auto accident, a lovely girl many of us had known since kindergarten and infancy, and the play was dedicated to her memory.
