LEBANON – “I never thought I would fly!” said Katarina Ausley, soon-to-be senior at OTHS, who is playing Peter Pan in the summer children’s production at Looking Glass Playhouse.

Children ages 5 through 18 were encouraged to give their best audition back in May of this year and have been rehearsing diligently for the months following.

Disney’s Peter Pan Jr. is directed by Brad Sanker, who has been a part of the nonprofit theater company since 2014, when he came out to be a part of the group’s annual production of A Christmas Carol.  However, this is the first children’s production that he has directed. Since then, Sanker designed sets and has starred in nearly every production at the theater, along with many members of his family, including his two children that are currently performing in Peter Pan.
