I was right, it was a play for "kids" not for adults. So if you have kids, this is the perfect play. It is the last weekend end though, so if you have not seen it and you have kids, better catch it in its re-run (if there will ever be). Kids were noisy and in awe everytime they see Peter Pan and the 3 children flying and Captain Hook acting funnily. Like every kid, it would be a delight to let them experience fantasy and adventure for children which will linger in their memories until they grow-up, similar to what I have experienced watching Sound of Music, Mary Poppins and the like when I was a child.
I was impressed with the set (by Gino Gonzales) and light (by John Batalla) design, and technical effects (Dong Calingacion as Technical Director) - flying Peter Pan, Wendy and siblings and all but as to other aspects it was "okay" - nothing exciting to say much about. The story is not deep enough for adults to appreciate and like any regular adult appreciation for kiddie-ish shows wanes as we grow older unless you belong to the exception. Expectedly, every kid who watched the show will have a different point of view from mine. I have some bits and pieces to say though (placed at the pictures' captions below).
|Robbie Zialcita at my left as sidekick of Captain Hook gave good acting performance ;)|
