What our Audience said about PETER PAN: 

"At one point in “Peter Pan,” the title character asks the audience to clap their hands if they believe in fairies ..  the crowd roared with applause, saving the life of Peter’s fairy friend, Tinker Bell." 
  •  (Constance) Lopez plays Peter Pan, bringing a youthful exuberance to the boy who doesn't want to grow up.
  • The cast is filled with impressive young actors.  Madison Seipp is well-mannered and inquisitive as Wendy, but she's  also able to capture the excitement of flying to Neverland with John (Coltin Luckfield) and Michael (Jacob Corcoran).
  • The Lost Children are wonderful.  Meagan Corcoran and Jayden Kipp are adorable as Twin 1 & Twin 2, and Hunter Anderson leads the charge as Slightly, the oldest memver of the group.
  • The Indiand led by Tiger Lily (Emma Hvizdak) have some of the best dance numbers. 
  • The pirates provide hilarious comedic relief, especially the impressive Chris Bailey as the overdramatic Captain Hook and Frank Leavitt as Smee.

Did I mention that the members of the cast actually fly?

That’s the type of magic that the Two of Us Productions brings to the stage for this musical." -- Darryl Gangloff, Lakeville Journal  

"Great show!  This is a difficult show due to the challenging technical aspects.  It was very well done! " -- Dan M. from Hudson NY.  

"This 'Peter Pan' gives fantasy a good name. "

  • The company ... come across a "real" children, "real" stage-Indians with an appealing "real" boy, Peter. 
  • Frank Leavitt's Smee is indeed a loveable villian
  • The stage adores a face such as Constance Lopez's (Peter Pan).  Its femininity ...  softens the character's loveless braggart side  .. the fact that a grown woman can make us believe she is an adolescent boy is an accomplishment; and Lopez accopmplishses
  •  Best of all is the music ..  Sanborn's 23 piece orchestra continues to grow in ensemble and in-tuneness .. getting that authentic Broadway sound, and that is to be cherished

 -- Marion Hunter, The Columbia Paper.
