Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie's enchanting play, Disney's Peter Pan JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn't grow up.

 

Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Neverland. Their journey introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!  It’s Peter to the rescue when Wendy is taken captive by the dreaded captain, who has his own sinister plans in mind for our hero.

Meet Bailey Coronis, Guest Co-Director from Drake University

Get to know this year's co-director, Bailey Coronis, who is from Saint Paul, Minnesota and a sophomore at Drake University majoring in Acting and Digital Media Production. 

 

Q: What shows have you participated in or directed in the past?

A: I have acted in several shows throughout my life.  Some of my favorite roles include Lumiere in "Beauty and the Beast," Rooster in "Annie" and Prince Charming in "Cinderella, " Marcellus Washburn in "The Music Man," Doody in "Grease" and Nicely-Nicely Johnson in "Guys and Dolls."

 

At Drake my most recent credit was this past fall in "Nice Work If You Can Get It" where I was in the dance ensemble. 

 

In high school, I was given the opportunity my junior and senior years to write and direct a one-act play.  My junior year I wrote and directed a play titled, "Thinking Out Loud," which was about a high school student government election race.  My senior year I wrote, directed and choreographed an original one-act musical called "Ask Penelope," which was about an advice column in a student-run newspaper.

 

Q: What are you most looking forward to about co-directing “Peter Pan” at St.Augustin?

A: I am most looking forward to getting to work with the students. It seems they are really excited about this project, and I am so excited to direct them and hopefully get them to produce a piece of theatre they are proud of.

 

Q: Tell us something fun about yourself.

A: When I graduated high school, I was given the amazing opportunity to go to Los Angeles for four months to be a production assistant on the television show, “Top Chef JR.” It was an amazing experience, and although it was a lot of work, I really enjoyed my time on set.
