Troy High School thespians to present “Peter/Wendy” this weekend


For the Miami Valley Today

TROY — The Troy High School Thespians will present Jeremy Bloom’s “Peter/Wendy” this weekend with a pair of showings, one at 7 p.m. Friday and one at 7 p.m. Saturday, in the Troy High School auditorium.

In this interpretation of the famous Peter Pan story, Bloom strips the familiar story down to its emotional essence. Peter lures Wendy away from her nursery to the magical world of Neverland, where she joins his adventures with Tinker Bell, Tiger Lily, and the menacing Captain Hook. It is a low-tech, inventive adaptation that pays homage to the darker themes of J. M. Barrie’s original
