ABA Shows musical meaning of M. M. Barrie’s well-loved children’s story rekindled in its target audience the desire to explode in the air, move with fairy godmothers and swimming with mermaids. It is at present on its Asian Travel and will be displayed in the Hong Kong Academy intended for Performing Disciplines Lyric Theatre on Summer 1, 2007. The story begins when Peter Pan educates three kids (Wendy, Steve and Michael jordan Darling) tips on how to fly using their happy thoughts and fairy dust from a little pixie named Tinkerbell.
Mystery and adventure unravels excitingly because they meet shed boys (and girls) who have are serious about being children for the rest of their lives, Indians under the management of Queen Tiger Lily, mermaids that can dance gracefully, and very funny buccaneers! Captain Hook, the leader of those buccaneers is usually Peter Pan’s most powerful opponent many succeeded in eliminating every one of Neverland. But of course, Peter Pan saved your day! Considering that the play’s imaginative core is definitely heavy with renowned pros from across the world, it most likely took its Executive Producer-Director, Matthew Gregory, years of cheerful thoughts and tons of fairy dust to make his team create these kinds of a natural yet radiant production that seemed to be excellent in all aspects.
Gregory wonderfully connected very very good lighting, ingenuous stage style (which was imported by China), impressive effects, ground breaking technology and impressive music (composed by famous writer, Karl Jenkins) to heighten or perhaps downplay the mood of every scene. Tracy Nunnally, the flying movie director, proved his prowess while the soaring actors glided on and off the stage with comfort and ease that seemed to be only a natural action to take. The makeup and outfits (especially intended for the mermaids who can walk with their fins) brought out the actual nature of every character and drew the group even more in the story.
Praises to Elaine Wade and Carol Bloomfield for this kind of beautiful and imaginative outfits! Thirteen year old Ryutaro Yanagita (playing Peter Pan) amazed everyone along with his relentless strength and tricks on the ground in addition to the air. The choreography of popular Filipino choreographer, Cat Aguila-Cortes, needed a lot of running, jumping and break dancing techniques but you will not ever hear this kind of boy capture his breath… only the target audience does. One’s spirit cannot help although join him fly when he zooms further than the level and above the crowd. Only 1 character in the play appeared to lack enough humor or rapport with all the audience – Nana, the nurse dog.
The actor or actress portrayed the role well but the first is left considering if there were scenes which should have aimed at this character’s antics to incorporate more essence to the talk. Peter Pan’s message is definitely the answer to man’s quest for everlasting youth: Maintain your happy thoughts alive in you center and have beliefs in yourself and others. ABA Productions properly conveyed this theme as every person in the audience sensed so much more happy and youthful after the enjoy.
This is a single spectacular and powerful demonstrate that simply no child or perhaps child in your mind should ever miss!
