Peter Pan Opening Night a smashing success!





The performance was excellent and the after-party was fun. With cool jazz playing, the hors d'oeuvres were great ~ everything from sushi, to fruit platters, cheeses to appetizers on a spoon and tea, coffee, punch and wine were available to all. The lighting was very dim, so half the time we couldn't see exactly what we were sampling. We were famished however, (because we hadn't really taken the time to eat supper), so we really didn't much care ~ everything tasted yummy. They had a cool ice sculpture of a ship "Wendy" to add to the ambiance.

Zach looked very handsome at the party in his "dress-up" clothes ~ even if he didn't button up 3 buttons on his shirt and "forgot" to wear his tie. Hehee

The first thing Zach said to me when we met him after the show was that everyone LOVED the stars. He added that a couple people even hugged him when they received them. While we were mingling at the party, the actor who played Hook came up to Zach and thanked him for the star, commenting on how creative it was.

I ended up making 4 extra stars which was a good thing. Instead of writing names on them, I wrote: "All children, except one, grow up". I think that once Zach realized how impressed people were with them, he was encouraged to give more out to some of the production crew including the director. The photo above shows Zach's star inside the see-thru envelope I made. I sealed all the envelope with copper coloured wax and sealed it with a embossing star.

A good time was had by all.
The big partiers that we are ...we arrived at home by midnight.

Hi there,
Glad the opening night went well...........I'm sure Zach will remember this for the rest of his life. Peter Pan is magical......I just adore Peter Pan..........I was lucky ( unlucky) enough to have been admitted to Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London..........which is where my fascination with the whole story began. Why ? because the author left the copyright of the story to this hospital so any film that is made about Peter Pan a percentage of the takings go to the hospital to help fund it......which it wel deserves. I remeber that I didn't want to go home after my operation I wanted to stay there and play with the giant rocking horses and all the toys.
On another note just love your art work, just great. If you ever want to do a 1-2-1 swap with me just shout OK.
hugs
