Imagination Takes Flight This Summer at the Wyly Theater

As seen in Paper City: Imagination takes flight this summer with Dallas Theater Center. The 2013 SummerStage program features a Neverland theme, in conjunction with Fly, a musical that follows classic characters Peter Pan, Wendy and the Lost Boys on an exciting new journey in Neverland.

SummerStage is in its 13th year, offering children ages 4-18 the opportunity to explore the world of theater. The program educates students in the fundamentals and techniques of theater, and ignites imaginations to create valuable learning experiences.

“We have teachers focused on everything from vocal training to text analysis, story/ drama for the very young, of course acting, and this summer even African dance,” says Rachel Hull, Director of Education and Community Enrichment.

SummerStage encourages students to fully explore what it means to work together. “Theater asks you to create with a team, so there’s an added layer of communication, negotiation and articulation of your ideas,” says Hull. “I think that the arts at the most basic level provide a place for participants to find their voices, and maybe a new way to express their thoughts, hopes and dreams.”

Based on J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and directed by Jeffrey Seller, Fly presents beloved characters in a new light. Isabela Moner, who plays Wendy, says her character is quite different from the classic depiction.

“Wendy hates everything about grown-ups – she wears her emotions on her sleeve and is not afraid of showing when she is mad, when she cares about someone, or when she likes a boy,” Moner says. “She is strong, tough and she swordfights!”

Hull notes that Fly is both a fantastically entertaining show and a discussion of real-life issues. “You pick up the classic themes of not wanting to grow up and finding a place to escape in order to just be a kid,” Hull says. “But Fly takes it a step further, suggesting part of that need is wanting to be able to forget, to let go of the harder stuff, which, even as a grown-up Wendy, is something most of us probably wish we could do.”

SummerStage sessions begin June 17. For enrollment information, class calendars and tickets to Fly, visit DallasTheaterCenter.org. Fly will run July 2-August 18 at the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre. Tickets are on sale now here.
