Are You Ready to FLY?
On July 2 FLY, a new musical based on J.M. Barrie’s novel, Peter Pan, will take over the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre. There will be flying expeditions, sword fights with pirates, stunning choreography and of course, the familiar characters we’ve all grown to love.
This month the cast and creative teams are hard at work in rehearsals on the upper levels of the Wyly Theatre, and the production team is busy loading-in the set and prepping the Potter Rose Performance Hall for the first FLY audience. And while the team at DTC is getting ready here, you can get ready at home with the current issue of PaperCity Magazine. Pick up a copy during the month of June (or click here to read online) for a sneak-peek at all things FLY-related.
In this insert, produced with special assistance from Briggs Freeman, you can read a few words from FLY director Jeffrey Seller, a three-time Tony Award®-winning producer. You can also learn a little about the logistics of making the cast fly across the Wyly stage, get an early look at a few of the set pieces, and meet Wendy, played by 11-year-old Isabela Moner.
