Greywolf Elementary’s Drama Club presents “Peter Pan Jr.” at 6 p.m. Friday, March 21, and Saturday, March 22, at the school. Admission is free at the school, 171 Carlsborg Road, with donations accepted.

Based on the story by J.M. Barrie and the 1953 Disney film, 46 students including Anthony Cortani as Peter Pan, Jaden Rego as Captain Hook, Kalli Wiker as Wendy and Christa Davis as Tinker Bell lead the 60-minute musical.

Boys and girls sing tunes from the film like “You Can Fly!,” “Following the Leader” and “The Second Star to the Right” plus songs from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Tinker Bell” film.
