Peter Pan (2014)

Tustin Area Council for Fine Arts

in cooperation with

present our 14th annual

Broadway in the Park production


The Broadway Musical

Soaring through the night sky, happy thoughts, a green pixie, scraggly pirates, a nasty and evil pirate captain, happy children, anxious parents, a shaggy dog, and a crocodile? Never Land! All of this and more came alive in Peppertree Park this August, as TACFA brought our biggest and most successful production to date to life, “Peter Pan”! If you were one of the lucky audience members who came to Old Town Tustin on a warm summer night to see Peter Pan you understand how all this was indeed possible! Offering an outstanding 14 years of Broadway musicals, TACFA scored another hit. Peter Pan helped us all to feel the happiness of children while enjoying some wild moments with pirates, lost boys, an Indian maiden and her Indian warriors. Everyone applauded this fun-filled flying production. Parents smiled when the kids in the audience cheered for Peter and booed at Captain Hook. Children screamed when the crocodile chomped after Hook and laughed when Nana the Dog bounded around the stage. The audience oohed and aahed as actors flew around and across the outdoor stage. Yes, the actors were actually being moved on special cables handled by trained flyers! It is a classic story by Sir J.M. Barrie that has delighted audiences for sixty years. What an evening of emotions and excitement! And TACFA was proud to produce it for Tustin and its many visitors.

TACFA was thrilled to have TJ Dawson of 3D Theatrical Productions (3DT) stage the production, while the actors and crew were equally excited to have the famous Broadway Peter Pan herself, Cathy Rigby, stop to share strategies with the staging, flying, and Hook and Peter Pan sword fight.

TACFA is grateful to our wonderful SPONSORS who help to underwrite the expenses of this size of a production. With their generosity, we were able to offer a quality production at an affordable price to over 5000 Tustin families and the greater Orange County guests. Our sincere appreciation and thank you to our partnerships with 3D Theatrical Productions, the City of Tustin, Tustin Parks and Recreation, Tustin Field Services, the Tustin Unified School District, the many non-profit groups who sold food, Black Marlin Restaurant, and the hundreds of community volunteers who assisted during the week. Vice President of this year’s Broadway in the Park, Erin Kociela, led an exceptional volunteer committee to organize all of the components in order to deliver an outstanding production. TACFA begins now to plan our 15th Broadway in the Park Production. If you are interested in joining us a Board member or as an ENCORE volunteer for our many art programs, please contact us through our website, or Vice President Eligia Nicolai at (714) 272-0673.
