Students at Charter Day School performed a riveting theatrical adaptation of Peter Pan Junior in front of a sold-out crowd on Saturday May 5, 2018. The play starred middle schoolers Alaina Natale as Peter Pan, Sophie Lundin at Wendy, Gavin Lindbert as Captain Hook, and Peyton Broyles as Tiger Lily. The performance included over 40 middle school students and took place at sister school Douglass Academy – located at 507 N. 6th St., Wilmington, NC 28401. The show was directed by Lauren Maasch, Music Teacher at Charter Day School. Mrs. Maasch directed a wildly successful adaptation of Cinderella last year.
Set amidst 80 acres in Leland, NC, the Charter Day School (CDS) is in its 18th year as a high-performing program of classical education for kindergarten through 8th grade.

Laurie Benton, Headmaster of Charter Day School, commented, “I was on the edge of my seat the entire time! The amount of talent we have at Charter Day School is unbelievable. Our students acted, danced and sang with professional acumen. Bravo!!”
Mrs. Maasch stated next year the prestigious Charter Day School drama department will do a performance of the classic musical Annie.
