Peter Pan Flies High

Excelsior Springs High School recently ran its fall play, Peter Pan. The musical featured students from both the high school and middle school. Peter Pan, played by Christina Vogler stole the show. Her high flying acting and stellar singing made the event spectacular. Not to be outdone, Gabe Van Dyne as Captain Hook, took the audience by storm with both his singing and humor. 7th Grader Mia Gansen, played Wendy, and left no doubt that she will be a stalwart on the stage for years to come.
