Madison, S.D. (KELO AM) - Peter Pan, the Darling family, the Lost Boys, Captain Hook and the many characters they come in contact with in Neverland, are making an appearance July 19th and 20th at 7 p.m., and July 21st at 2 p.m. at the Dakota Prairie Playhouse in Madison, S.D.
Dakota State University Theatre and Madison area community members are presenting “Peter Pan”, a story about never-ending youth and knowing the joys of family and friends. For DSU Theatre Director, Kelly MacLeod, this is her first summer production in Madison.
“There was a great mix of about 44 community members, DSU students and alumni and families of DSU faculty and staff that attended the Peter Pan audition,” stated MacLeod. “There is definitely a need and desire for summer community theatre in Madison.”
Not only do DSU and Madison area community members take part in acting in the play, they also play a vital role in preparation for the event. The building of the set, collection of props, special effects and sewing of the costumes are just a few of the opportunities available to assist in the production. And of course, the backstage help to make the performances run smoothly is very important to make the theatre collaboration a success.
“As usual, thank you so much to the DSU and Madison community for the wonderful, wonderful support,” said MacLeod. “We are looking forward to seeing you all in Neverland!”
Please call 256-5703 to reserve tickets. Leave a message with your name, phone number, desired performance time and number of seats needed. Dakota Prairie Playhouse is located north of the Dakota State University campus at 820 N. Washington Ave, in Madison, S.D.
