The North Valley Arts Academies’ Theatre program at Shadow Mountain High School presents an original play based in the world created by J.M. Barrie in his classic novel, Peter Pan. Please mark your calendars and help us spread the word about this magical, whimsical play devised from scratch by Dr. Teresa Minarsich and SMHS NVAA Theatre students – Tink: A Fairy Origin Story
Tink: A Fairy Origin Story tells the story of how Tinkerbell discovered her magic and met a boy named Peter. Using theatre magic, music, movement, light, and color, the cast and crew bring to life the unknown story of Tinkerbell’s journey to become the famous fairy everyone knows. Tickets are on sale now
Thurs., Fri, and Sat. Feb 2-4th @7pm
Sat. Feb. 4th @2pm
Tickets $10

Collaboration with Disney Theatricals for Peter and the Starcatcher and Marvel One Acts

Shadow Mountain High School and the North Valley Art’s Academy Theatre Program worked with Disney Theatricals in New York as one of the few high schools across the nation to pilot Disney’s Peter and the Starcatcher and two Marvel one-acts before the amateur rights were released.

We provided Disney Theatricals with feedback on the challenges and opportunities these particular scripts provided for high school theatres.

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER and the NVAA Theater Program was featured in Raising Arizona Kids Magazine  – read the great press here

The North Valley Arts Academy’s performance of Peter and the Starcatcher was featured in the Paradise Valley Independent. . . check out the article here!
