Peter Pan Reviews / Quotes
San Diego Theater Scene:
“…every once in a while - something very special happens when top talented youth perform this show (Peter Pan) - and last week, was one of those special events with the North County School of the Arts performance to a sold-out audience, at the David and Dorothea Garfield Theatre. This show delivered a….”high flying hit”!”
“Let’s have hats-off to the excellent North County School of the Arts of Encinitas, founded and created by Pamela Laurent and her husband, Scott Gregory. These are two fine individuals, whose vision serves all of San Diego theatre goers interest…but especially - those of our children. The last time I reviewed one of their shows was SHREK … and it was tremendous!”
“Superlatives abound with this production, and they are all deserved - Wondrous, Spectacular, Awesome, Magical!”
“Let us not forget the very formidable talent of Scott Gregory the veteran professional actor/opera singer - who very animatedly plays Peter’s nemesis, Captain Hook. Scott’s mannerisms, facial expressions and voice, perfectly depicted every aspect of the fiendish Captain Hook…”
“Congrats to Pamela and Scott for creating such a unique and fun place, for students to learn and create … away from computers and video games. “
