Silent Film From page 1 score written specifically for this event. Olympic gymnast and Tony Award nominee Cathy Rigby, who played Peter Pan on Broadway from. 1991 to 1998, will make a special guest appearance and will introduce the film. In this classic tale of a magical boy who refuses to grow up, Peter Pan befriends the Darling children and--with the help of some fairy dust from Tinker BellMteaches them to fly. He takes the children to Never Never Land, a make-believe land full of mermaids, pirates and adventure. The children enjoy this fantasy land but a dangerous pirate named Captain Hook is plotting his revenge on Peter for the loss of his hand and all the children are threatened. This film is a great fit for the museum's Silent Film Benefit as the scenes showing the land of make-believe were filmed on Santa Cruz Island and Santa Catalina. No silent film experience would be complete without live musical accompaniment by an orchestra. Award-winning composer Michael Mortilla will lead the seven-piece ensemble comprised of some of the nation's leading musicians for this performance. Considered the best of the best, these musicians have performed with the likes of Michael Jackson, Tony Bennett, Beyonc6 and the Dixie Chicks, on film scores for "Star Wars," "La La Land" and "Little Miss Sunshine," for tele- visions shows such as "Glee,~' "House of Cards," and "The Cathy Rigby, pictured above during her Broadway run as Peter Pan, will introduce the first film adaptation of the "Peter Pan" story to the Silent Film Benefit audience this Saturday.
