Young Greendale Resident Performs in First Stage Children’s Theater’s PETER PAN AND WENDY

Oct. 22, 2010

First Stage Children’s Theater opened its 24th season with a fast-paced adaptation of the classic tale of Wendy and her brothers’ journey through Neverland in PETER PAN AND WENDY, now through November 14, 2010 at the Todd Wehr Theater in the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, 929 N. Water Street in downtown Milwaukee.

Greendale resident Conner Mills (10) appears as Michael (the youngest of the Darling children) in the play. This is his second appearance with First Stage. When asked what he likes most about acting Mills replied, “I like that I can be anyone I want to be when I act. I can go into a whole different personality and be someone besides myself.” Aside from acting, Conner plays the guitar and violin and is a black belt in tae kwon do.

Conner Mills can be seen in First Stage’s PETER PAN AND WENDY running now through November 14. “PETER PAN AND WENDY promises to be an amazingly theatrical production,” said Jeff Frank, First Stage artistic director. “We’ll have actors and set pieces manipulated in the tradition of Japanese Bunraku – multiple puppeteers dressed completely in black to manipulate the puppets, or in this case the actors themselves. This will allow us to have actors fly through the clouds, travel to magical places and engage in spectacular battles with marauding pirates – all within the confines of our theater space,” continued Frank.

PETER PAN AND WENDY is recommended for everyone ages 5 and up. For more information or to purchase tickets visit www.firststage.org
