Alanna Saunders as wendy

 

“… [Saunders performance] was done with such innocence
and saccharine, it had me smiling the whole time.
And don’t even get me started on Wendy’s singing voice.
Alanna Saunders absolutely nails it!”

— Minne Mama Adventures

 
 
 
 

“Alanna Saunders as Wendy complements Michaels’ eager enthusiasm as she embraces her new role as mother to the Lost Boys. Saunders’ pure, sweet soprano enchants as she sings “Distant Melody.”

— SW News Media

“Onstage in Minneapolis, Saunders depicts a winsome, charismatic Wendy... Michaels and Saunders deliver with effortless chemistry and oodles of charm in Rothstein’s magical production... Saunders telegraphs a similar innocence and wholesomeness. She remains emotionally open and clear that even as she gets disappointed Peter does not know a thimble from a kiss. There’s no doubt she has that “It” factor.”

— Star Tribune

ALANNA SAUNDERS AS TIGER LILY

 

“But all the kudos should really go to Saunders, who not only
sounded great live, but didn't miss a single cue or step
(OK, she missed one or two in the most endearing way possible)
during the live broadcast.”

— Bustle

 
 
 
 
 

“..the standout performance of Alanna Saunders.”
