Peter Pan & Wendy Photo Dump

Good morning!  

How are you?  I am great. Nervous excited for our first performance.  It's only one week away.  How are we possibly going to perform so soon?  For the past three and a half months I've been looking forward to this, but now that it's almost here, I wish I could go back to our first rehearsal.  

We have auditions for the summer musical tomorrow.  It’s just another reminder that this show is coming to an end.  I am looking forward to the musical, though.  I don’t actually like singing in public, but I still want to do it. 

Two weeks ago, we had our photo shoot.  At first it was scheduled for the week before.  Then things happened.  Things like snow, at the end of April, in New Mexico.  Yeah, and two days later Willa was out in the pool swimming because it was in the 80s.  Don’t ask me.  New Mexico weather is weird.

Anyway, here are some of the photos!  I’m planning on editing this to add more photos when they’re released, so I’d love it if you’d check back.

Full cast photo (aka, my favorite).  Why does Jake (Hook) look so tall?  He is shorter than the kid behind him and to his left.

Peter and Wendy.

The mostly-fearsome pirate crew.  Again, Jake looks too tall.

Our gorgeous narrator.

The Darling family.  Now I look tall?

The Lost Boys.

Another of Peter and I.

Captain Hook and Peter Pan.

Tinkerbell and Peter.

The first flight.

I am so pleased with the photos.  I think I captured the spirit of Wendy in them.  Whatever the case, the dress is just amazing to wear.  I feel like Wendy and unconsciously change the way I move to fit her.  I also learned something new!  When you get a mosquito bite, make an X on it with your fingernail.  It won't make the itching stop immediately, but it makes the bite go away within a day.


Do you like the photos?
Did you know about the mosquito bite trick?


  1. That looks awesome! You look so pretty! And the whole cast in costumes looks great -- it seems you had a lot of fun. :) And I did NOT know about the mosquito bite trick! I shall try it next time I get a bite. ;)

  2. Thanks! We had a blast :) yes, it's very helpful!

  3. Lovely photos, Pip! I'm in a Peter Pan production with my theatre group to so it's pretty cool to see others doing it as well!

  4. Oh goodness such loveliness! Peter Pan has been a part of me since I was a tiny thing xD I would totally freak out with excitement if I was Wendy Darling!!!
    By the way, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner about the tag! I really don't do tags anymore but I always feel so honored when people tag thanks, girl!
    Lovely! <3333

    1. Thank you! We are performing today, so that excited and nerve racking.
      Really? That's cool. And yes, I completely freaked out when I got the role.
      Don't worry about it. Thanks for commenting!

    2. I hope my dance studio does fairy tales and/or book themes next year for our recital...this year we are doing Hollywood and our class' number is from Grease *slaps forehead*
