In addition, all of the props, costumes and tickets were designed by the students.

"I'm really excited. I really want to do the sword fight," said kindergartner Casey Whitebread, who plays Peter Pan.

Fifteen students ages 4 to 6 dressed in colorful costumes as they performed around a large pirate ship onstage in the show that featured sword fights, flying fairies and swimming mermaids.
