Peter Pan

  • The Top of the Mountain

    Dancers from The Gray School of Irish Dance had a busy St Patrick’s Day season this year. Of course, it’s one of their busiest times of the year, with performances in local parades celebrating their talents, and this year students from the various schools — located in Newtown, Danbury, Ridgefield, and elsewhere — had performances in Danbury, Essex, and Norwich St Patrick’s Day parades, a program at Danbury Library, and other events across the state.

  • A Wonderful Experience

    To the Editor:

    What a wonderful experience! Newtown can be proud of its young people.

    We as senior citizens were delighted to be invited to the dress rehearsal of Peter Pan at the high school and the lovely dinner that preceded it.

    We were met at the door by several young people from the student government, eager to talk with us and escort us to the cafeteria for our dinner sponsored by the PTSA. We sincerely wish to thank our hosts.

  • The Top of the Mountain

    Little Genesis Fuentes may be on her way home to Belize by the end of next week, I’m told by Rotary Club member Pat Caruso. Genesis, a 3-year-old in need of heart surgery, came to the United States in early January, through the efforts of the Newtown Rotary Club and the Rotary Club International Gift of Life program.

  • ‘Peter Pan’ Soaring Toward Next Weekend’s Showings

    Newtown High School junior Victoria Madden was practicing her “flying” techniques after school on Monday, March 10.

    Victoria is set to play the lead in the high school’s upcoming production of Peter Pan in the March 20 to 23 showings of the musical.

    Peter Pan tells the story of a boy who lives in a land called Neverland and never grows up.

  • NHS Drama To Present 'Peter Pan' Next Month

    In order to make Newtown High School’s upcoming production of Peter Pan fly, organizers are looking at funding alternatives, including an online fundraising page and corporate sponsors for the musical.

    Last year’s musical production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying won a national honor for its lead actor. 

  • The Top of the Mountain

    There has been a change of venue for Friday night’s family ice skating party. Instead of the temporary rink at Fairfield Hills, the February 7 event has been moved to the Dickinson Park pavilion rink... weather permitting (it’s been one of those weeks, after all.) There is still time to sign up for the event, which will run from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. DJ Kevin Koschel will provide the music, and there will be a small bonfire. There is no charge, but reservations are requested so that organizers know how much hot chocolate will be needed.

  • Sponsors Sought For NHS March Production Of ‘Peter Pan’

    Newtown High School’s March musical production may be months off, but NHS Choral Director Jane Matson has her sight set on the “second star to the right,” with hopes that sponsors can be found to cover costs.

    Ms Matson said sponsors are needed as soon as possible for the school’s planned production of Peter Pan, based on the story by the same name by J. M. Barrie.
