Dreams come true and enchantment abounds in the upcoming production of Escape to Neverland presented by Page Youth Center performing arts students.

Directed by gifted theater arts teacher Erin Bonski, Escape to Neverland is the musical culmination of PYC’s winter performing arts program, which has given first- through eight-grade students exciting workshops in voice, dance and acting.

The production will premiere at 7 p.m. this Saturday, March 26 at the Salvation Army Facility, 4849 Hollister Ave. in Goleta.

PYC’s performing arts program inspires the child’s imagination, concentration and command of body and voice while building self-confidence and collaborative skills.

Through theater games, role playing, movement and dance, children are taught the art of the performer. Children’s vocal skills are developed as they learn proper breathing, basic musicianship and the pure joy of singing.

All of these tools are put to practical use with the production of a mini-Broadway style musical presented for families and friends at the culmination of each quarterly session.

Sign-ups are under way for PYC’s spring and summer performing arts sessions, which run from April 5 to May 21 and June 13 to Aug. 5, respectively.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
