The Berkeley Institute Set To Present “Peter Pan”

December 3, 2015

[Written by Berkeley student Dejanee Hill-Edwards]

Members of The Berkeley Institute’s Arts Department have been working from September to present this year’s performance of Broadway’s Peter Pan.

The cast is huge and there are many different elements ranging from acting, singing, dancing, and a live orchestra that have to be combined in order to create the magical experience intended to be given off by our production.

We have even taken it a step further by incorporating flying and visual special effects!

My position as Assistant Stage Manager has allowed me to have a unique perspective of this production.

Not being on the front end makes you appreciate the hard work and dedication that goes into putting on the type of premiere productions we pride ourselves in producing.

I have been able to watch the progression the cast and crew have made since we began and it is incredible! There is so much talent amongst us.

Being involved in a production such as Peter Pan has had an unusual way of bringing the best out of everyone and creating a family that supports each other both inside and outside of the theatre.

I am excited and confident that our production of Broadway’s Peter Pan will be a magical journey you will not want to miss!

  1. I think this is excellent, but could the schools work together and not have performances on the same nights,such as Cedar Bridge and The Berkeley,I find myself having to do one or the other, when I have a child in both.

    @Duane

    Truth be told, I completely agree that the schools should work together to arrange their respective performances. However, there are other factors that in play here, i.e. renting of performance space, rights to productions, etc.

    When one has the ability to host their production on any night they choose versus one who has to book their performance space years in advance, sometimes conflicts happen.

    I agree, perhaps ALL Principals could meet to prepare Calendars for the year so as to allow everyone to attend and support our Pupils at School functions. Families are pulled enough already with parents working extra jobs or overtime and are relying on grandparents, uncle, aunty and godparents to stand in for them. Our children look forward to seeing their parents in the audience and for those parents who don’t attend functions, the children eventually feel resentment and unloved.
