Costumes

Dear Parents,
It is getting to be that time when we need to start thinking about costumes. I am sure most of you are already thinking about it. Thank you all for being patient as I made my final costuming plans.
The costumes are very simple. Please find your child's part below and read the description. If you have questions please contact me.

             If your child is a Pirate (This does not include Smee or Captain Hook) they should wear any combination of solid BLACK and RED (this should be a primary, bright red). I am not picky on the style of clothing; shorts, t-shirt, pants, or a skirt would all be fine. If possible, use things you already own. 
(No prints, no logos please) I don't want this to be a huge additional expense :)  When it is their turn to be on stage they will be adding minor costume pieces that will add to the effect. These pieces will be provided so you don't have to worry about them.
             If your child is a Lost Boy they should wear any combination of solid YELLOW, BROWN, and GREEN. These should be earth tones. (No prints, no logos please) I am not picky on the style of clothing; shorts, t-shirt, pants, or a skirt would all be fine. (NO logos please) If possible, use things you already own. I don't want this to be a huge additional expense :) When it is their turn to be on stage they will be adding minor costume pieces that will add to the effect. These pieces will be provided so you don't have to worry about them.

  • If your child is a mermaid/Indian they should wear any combination of purple and blue. (No jeans please, No prints, No logos please) Other than that I am not picky on the style of clothing; shorts, t-shirt, pants, or a skirt would all be fine. If possible, use things you already own. I don't want this to be a huge additional expense :) When it is their turn to be on stage they will be adding minor costume pieces that will add to the effect. These pieces will be provided so you don't have to worry about them.


             Mother, Father, Crocodile, and Nana may choose a costume appropriate to their character. No need to be super fancy, but we want the illusion that you are the character. Feel free to contact me if you are uncomfortable creating the costume on your own or if you just want to run an idea by me.
             Peter Pan's Shadow should dress in complete black.
             If your child shares a role with another cast member then their costumes need to be coordinated. This includes: Narrators, Peter Pan, Wendy, John, Michael, Tinkerbell, Captain Hook, and Smee. My primary objective with the main characters is that all members playing the same role look similar. For example all three Wendys should be wearing similar clothes. This helps the audience follow the frequent changes in character. As long as the costumes are appropriate to the character and coordinated between the multiple roles, I am very flexible. I do not expect the character to be super fancy, we are just creating the illusion of the character. The most important thing is that your child feels comfortable in their chosen costume. Send me an email if you have questions regarding your child's costume or need contact info for the other children's parents.
I hope this gives parents an idea of what I am looking for. I know there will be lots of follow up questions and that is ok. I want this to be as stress-free as possible. Simple is ok! :)
