Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Janice Helmick

On July 27, audiences had the opportunity to watch the performance of Peter Pan put on by the Springville Playhouse at Springville High School. My husband, Ed and I have been involved with this play from the beginning because our good friend Mark Shipley designed, painted and constructed the backdrop. Mark is the father of Tannie Hjorth who directed the play.

Peter Pan lived in Neverland, and Neverland lives in the mind of every child, and in the imagination of the child that lives in every adult.

It is a play about children, performed by children. There were 150 young people who tried out for the play, and only about 70 of them could be used. Peter Pan and Tinker Belle were very engaging, and Captain Hook was fierce even if he was short. The costuming was well designed and added to the eye appeal.

Quoting from the program, “This is the inaugural year for the Springville Playhouse’s Youth Theater Council. They have been an integral part of putting on this year’s production. They are given internship responsibilities for all aspects of the play.”

The performance schedule is July 28, 29, and 31 and August 3, 4, and 5. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the play begins at 7. Tickets are $8 for students and senior citizens, $9 for adults, or $45 for a family of six.

We have been asked thank Springville City, the Springville Arts Commission, Nebo School District and Springville High School Theater Department for the use of the Springville High School facilities.

On a clear summer’s night if a star winks at you, let your inner child take a trip to Neverland for a real adventure. Your safe return is almost guaranteed.
