Peter Pan brings magic to the Honeywell Center

By Eric Stearley

Audiences cheered this weekend as the Wabash Area Community Theatre took the stage for their performance of Peter Pan.

The stage was lit in a kaleidoscope of colors throughout the performance as Peter, played by Allison Thayer chased his shadow, befriended the Darling children, took the children to Neverland, and fought the evil band of pirates led by Captain Hook, played by Gary Dale.

A live orchestra accompanied the theatrics as the cast sang and danced through forests, in tree houses, and on a pirate ship.

CareTogether launches in North Manchester and Wabash


All children require a strong foundation during their early years to be ready to begin kindergarten, and, this fall, the Wabash County YMCA has launched CareTogether to help build that foundation. In this free program, children ages newborn to five years old meet twice a week for two hours to learn, grow and play together. Caregivers of the children (parents, grandparents, babysitters) are active participants in the program, playing and learning together with the child in their care. Children who may not be enrolled in formal preschool will learn skills they need for future schooling, while their caregivers learn how to better support their development at home.
