Due to high demand for matinee performances, Syracuse Stage has added a performance of "Peter Pan" on Tuesday, Dec. 29, at 2 p.m. These daytime performances are very popular with families and young children and many are sold out.

Directed by Paul Barnes with flying effects by ZFX, Inc., "Peter Pan" is a co-production between Syracuse Stage and the Syracuse University Department of Drama. Anthony Salatino is the choreographer and Brian Cimmet the music director. The cast features three Actors’ Equity performers Donald Corren (Captain Hook/Mr. Darling), Christine Toy Johnson (Mrs. Darling/Wendy Grown Up), and Kraig Swartz (Smee). Twenty-five Department of Drama students fill out the cast including Troy Hussmann (Peter Pan), Delphi Borich (Wendy, and Ana Marcu (Tiger Lily). Oswego’s Matthew Caraccioli and Cortland’s Séamus Gailor play John and Michael Darling.

"Peter Pan" performs through January 3, 2016 in the Archbold Theatre at the Syracuse Stage/Drama Complex, 820 East Genesee Street.
