Fairy dust lifts the Darling children soaring through starry skies to a fantastical realm of pirates and eternal youth. Since 1904, J. M. Barrie’s tale of Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up, has captured the imagination; deep down we want to believe in happy endings. Spreckels’ enthralling production includes midair fight scenes, Tinkerbell rifling through drawers and shifting pictures through practical effects, and elaborate costumes. Director Sheri Lee Miller has honed an effective ensemble for Neverland exploits.

ou may have noticed the new sign in the Safeway shopping center—a glowing bowl and chop sticks above the space recently vacated by Pho 90. This is Simmer, Rohnert Park’s bustling new Vietnamese eatery, and while I’m told that the minimalist signage is temporary, in a sense it almost seems apt.

The Elizabethan holiday season, crowned by Twelfth Night, was a boisterous atmosphere of inebriated celebration, where the Lord of Misrule held court, eventually banned by Puritans who were horrified at the unbridled pagan revelry. William Shakespeare draws on its festive mischief for his comedy of gender swapping and mistaken identities causing a romantic tangle “too hard a knot for me to untie” as Viola bemoans.

Basking in tropical sunshine, “South Pacific” is set during World War II on an idyllic island. Restless sailors have been left to their own devices, until a marine lieutenant arrives with a daring plan to spy on the enemy fleet. Necessity brings together a diverse gathering of Americans, French, and the native population, which appear to be in harmony until romance blossoms, triggering the internalized racism simmering below the surface and ripping apart the lovers in self-imposed pain.
