Volunteers with the children in the Court Appointed Special Advocates program say experiences like these let young minds explore freely.

And of course, they were able to get a little taste of Neverland.

For many of these young children under foster care have never taken part in a live musical production.

Kids were able to get an inside look of the different costumes, stage designs, and were even able to create their own Peter Pan outfit.

CASA of the Coastal Bend volunteers also say when the children get to come out and take part in these different activities they really enjoy their visit.

“Oh they talk about it all the time my CASA child still talks about the trip we made to the aquarium last year and that was a great experience for her she learned a lot, had a great time plus she got to see other children who were visiting as well,” says CASA volunteer Patricia Stegall.

Who knows, certain activities could inspire their future.

“We here at the Harbor Playhouse are very passionate about having children learn about theatre because theatre is not just something that is for entertainment it is something that can help children build their creativity and develop growth and so that is what we are happy to have doing today,” says Lyric Sessa Marketing & Developing Manager of the Harbor Playhouse.
