How would you like to be remembered? Each of us enters our Golden Years with that question in mind. What's my legacy? If you had a choice, would you prefer to be remembered as: a generous philanthropist; connoisseur of the arts; devoted spouse, parent and grandparent; raconteur; dedicated worker; or compassionate citizen of the world? You doubtless can provide many other equally endearing labels. Or, maybe you'd just be content to be remembered as Peter Pan. That apparently is how I'm remembered by one soul.

Look, up in the sky. It's a bird. It's a plane. It's ... "Peter Pan. " Yes, the forever-young hero of J.M. Barrie's ever-popular children's story is back, and this time — with the help of some well-placed wires — he really flies. The spectacle, which had been billed to run through Nov. 21, has now been extended till Jan. 2, at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa. The flying, while impressive, isn't the most eye-catching aspect of the visiting production from England's threesixtyº theater.

Of all the stories written to be read, and ultimately viewed, by children, my personal favorite has long been “Peter Pan.” He never wanted to grow up and, as a child, I didn’t think much of the prospect either. South Coast Repertory’s Summer Players, composed of members of the company’s Theatre Conservatory from fourth to 12th grades, are presenting a “different” version of the classic J. M. Barrie fable — different in that it contains original music (by composer Hiram Titus)

The Segerstrom Center for the Arts has reported a modest rise in attendance and revenue for the 2010-11 season that recently ended. The center in Costa Mesa said the increases were due largely to blockbuster-type shows such as the visiting high-tech "Peter Pan" and touring Broadway musicals. But the financial outlook for Orange County's largest arts organization still looks uncertain, and its long-term goal of raising $240 million to pay the construction debt on the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, which opened more than four years ago, remains unrealized.

When Costa Mesa resident Debbie Brostek was a child at Disneyland, she didn’t want to leave until she saw Tinker Bell fly during the evening fireworks show. Saturday, Brostek got to revisit her childhood at South Coast Plaza. Margaret Kerry, who served as the model for Tinker Bell in Disney’s animated “Peter Pan,” visited the Home Holidays and Traditions store on the Bear Street side to sign autographs and meet with fans from multiple generations. Kerry sat by a table of glossy photographs for most of Saturday and plans to return today from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Her autographs went for $29.95 or $50 for a pair.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Clap your hands if you believe in fairies. Like Peter Pan, you'd like to pretend you are a kid forever. Like Tinker Bell, you are easily fooled and could be tricked by someone who does not have scruples. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Tall, dark strangers could turn you on, but the feeling may not be reciprocal. The theatrical atmosphere that is building up is better used for putting on a one-act play than for dealing with real life. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
