Syracuse City Ballet’s “Peter Pan” On Stage


The classic tale of “Peter Pan” comes to life on stage as part of Syracuse City Ballet’s 2019 season. The production, which was performed 20 years ago is back on stage with some new and old familiar faces too.

Artistic Director Kathleen Rathbun performed the role of Wendy in the production back in 1999 and this year “Peter Pan” will come full circle as her daughter Claire will take on the same role.

“The neat part about it is that the people who were part of it, are back again,” Kathleen said. “It’s this really kind of cool transition,” she added.

Dancer and former student Kameron Triche will also return to be part of the production. She’ll take on the role of Tiger Lilly and Kathleen says seeing former dancers return is really a dream come true.

Claire Rathbun is thrilled to be playing a role that her mother took on twenty years ago and she loves having younger generations look up to her as a ballerina too. She says it’s really a thrill to be able to come home to Central New York to perform as part of this prodction and others.

“For me to be able to show [students] a little bit of how I do things is just so important,” Claire said.

Syracuse City Ballet’s production of “Peter Pan” runs this weekend at the Crouse Hinds Theater. Showtimes are Saturday at 6pm and Sunday at 12pm and 4pm. For tickets and information, visit
