Utica, NY (WIBX) - Thanks to the Broadway Theatre League of Utica, local residents have the opportunity this week to see Peter Pan in action at the Stanley Theatre. Cathy Rigby, the first American woman to win a medal in World Gymnastics, stars as Peter Pan in the long running Broadway show, and today she took the time to show a local celebrity how to take flight. Holland Farms Owner, Marolyn Wilson was the lucky one to get the first hand experience.

Rigby says Wilson easily took to flying and adds that flying as Peter Pan is effortless. "Flying is like doing your most difficult trick in Gymnastics only it's effortless because I have two people that actually lift me up in the air and swing me from side to side. I have to make sure that I do my physical part to keep form and to make sure I'm at the right angle and flipping at the right time and spinning," Rigby said.

You can catch Peter Pan take flight this evening at 7:00p.m. The final show in Utica is taking place on Thursday November 17th. For ticket information, visit, www.thestanley.org.
