He can fly...He can fly...He flew!
W peter crows
Peter Pan, portrayed by Madelyn Wolfe, center, crows for Wendy (Eastyn Durrence), right, and Tinker Bell (Katie Ann Bowers) during a scene from Statesboro High School's production of "Peter Pan."

    The famous lyric in the song "You Can Fly" indicates that Peter Pan could indeed take to the sky. But audiences treated to a performance at Statesboro High School this week learned that those famous flying tights belonged in this production to Madelyn Wolfe — and that she, too, could fly. 

Joined by Eastyn Durrence as Wendy, Michah D'Arcangelo as John and Kenzie Cannady as Michael, Wolfe and the cast led the audience on a rollicking ride through the classic children's story. Other characters included Captain Hook, played by Andrew Pittman; Smee, played by Justin Smith, Tinker Bell, played by Katie Ann Bowers; and Tiger Lily, played by Julian Schwarz. 

The final performance of the production will be at 2 p.m. today. General admission is $5.

The SHS Drama Department will also perform "Mary Poppins" on April 26-27, at 9 a.m. for parents and students. Admission is $2. Public performances will be held on April 28 at 7 p.m. and April 29 at 2 p.m. General admission for those performances is $5.

Both performances  are under the direction of Eddie Frazier, assisted by student directors Harlie Carter and Marissa Hendrix.
