L. A. professionals help kids take flight

Hattiesburg (WDAM) -Without the help of fairy dust, local child actors are learning to fly.  Los Angeles professionals were flown in to teach the boys and girls acting in this weekend's "Stage Struck" production of "Peter Pan" how to fly using harnesses.  Behind the scenes, ropes will be pulled to give the child actors the illusion of flying.  The same LA instructors teaching the kids were also in charge of harnessing the actors in Broadway's latest production of "Peter Pan."  As the "Stage Struck" Owner says, it's all a part of helping add to the quality of the play-one that will give the audience a good show. 

"Stage Struck" Studio Owner, Brenda Parker commented, "They'll either applaud real big or be completely awestruck and not know what to do."  For the actors themselves it's one fun ride.

Alden Parsons, who plays "Wendy" said, "I don't know how to describe it.  It's awesome, and like nothing I've ever done before."

"Peter Pan" will play Friday night and Saturday at 2:00 and 7:30 at the Seanger theater.  Tickets will be on sale for twelve dollars.
