This Spring, JAM’s the performing arts class will be producing a superb adaptation of Peter Pan by Pioneer Drama that captures all the magic and charm of everyone’s favorite story. The Darling children love to hear of Peter Pan’s adventures during his visits through the open window of the nursery. Then one night after Nana has taken his shadow and Wendy has sewn it back on, Peter Pan and Tinker Bell whisk the children off to Neverland to be part of the adventures. Wendy, John, and Michael become friends with the Lost Boys and Princess Tiger Lily and Wendy becomes everyone’s mother. When the evil Captain Hook captures Wendy and the Lost Boys, Peter Pan comes to their rescue. Together with the ticking crocodile, Peter Pan puts Captain Hook in his place and returns the Darling children to their home.
JAM (Jackson Arts Ministry) is an arts program that provides a variety of seasonal classes for children, youth, and adults. JAM is a program birthed out of a strong desire to see the arts in Jackson flourish and grow greater than ever before. We are a group of members from Jackson United Methodist Church who love Jackson and the arts. Our teachers want to share their experiences, talents, and wisdom with each and every student and performer, children and adults alike. We are fully funded by donations, voluntary tuition, and ticket sales to our performances.
Auditions will be held for students from 5th-12th grade on January 24th and 27th at Jackson United Methodist Church (68 Bennetts Mills Rd., Jackson, NJ 08527). Everyone is welcome to participate, and everyone who auditions will get a part, although we are limited to 50 students, so please sign-up quickly.
