It feels entirely appropriate that a new chapter in the life of the historic Utah Theatre in downtown Logan should open with a light-hearted production of the beloved musical “Peter Pan.”
The delightfully dated show being staged by the Utah Festival Opera & Musical Theatre through early August gives director Vanessa Ballam the opportunity to indulge in seldom-seen theater magic, including Peter Pan triumphantly flying over the heads of the audience. This fun-filled exploration of a fairy tale also seems to signal that Cache Valley now has its own Neverland, a theatrical playground with technical capabilities so state-of-the-art that future directors will be bound only by their own imaginations.
