TEA Members treated to a special evening: Peter Pan at the Garden Theatre

TEA Members were treated to a special evening at the Garden Theatre in Winter Garden, Florida on May 14, 2015 as the Eastern Division celebrated the theatre’s performance of Peter Pan.  This innovative production of the timeless Broadway musical featured state-of-the-art digital projection, animation and projection mapped scenery.  The sold-out event featured a panel discussion where the creative team behind the play, including several TEA member companies, shared the challenges and triumphs of the design process.  The TEA ties went even deeper, as Amber Larkin’s daughter and Steve Birket’s daughter had performing roles in the play.  The evening closed with the 100 plus attendees watching the wonderfully entertaining performance in the historic theatre.

TEA Companies that were part of the production include:  Alcorn McBride, Inc., Birket Engineering, Inc., Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc., Nth Degree Design & Visual FX.
