Nancy A. Gibbs, who formerly lived in our neighborhood on W. Taylor Run, has produced a new hit in New York. "Peter and the Starcatcher" is a prequel to Peter Pan. It explains how Peter and the Lost Boys attained their eternal youth, and why Captain Hook pursued them so relentlessly. The New York Times reviewed the show most enthusiastically.
Janet and David Beckmann, of Park Road, went up to New York to the opening night, which they enjoyed tremendously.
"Peter is a tour-de-force of the imagination," says Janet. " The audience could not have been more elated."
"After a Christmas cruise to the Caribbean, we decided to have a big Easter dinner," says Katherine Morrison. At the table were the Morrison's two sons and six friends from the past. Benjamin Terry has been a friend of one of the Morrison's sons since their days at T. C. Williams High School.
Katherine has the most interesting job; she moves from firm to firm taking positions as an interim executive director. She is now serving as the executive director at Community Bridges up in Silver Spring. Jim and Katherine live on W. View Terrace.
FORT WARD EXCITEMENT
Those enterprising people of Fort Ward are again bringing us an unusual experience; a Civil War encampment will take place and a 19,000 cubic ft. netted gas balloon will rise over the park. This will all happen on April 28; activities will start at 11 a.m. These balloons were used for reconnaissance during the Civil War at Fort Ward.
I must apologize to Darlene Johnson for changing her name to Doreen in the last column.
