Greenport Peter Pan play a YouTube hit

Students of a Greenport High School play last year are the latest YouTube stars - but not for a flawless Peter Pan performance.

Near the end of the third act, a stagehand jumped his cue and pulled the rope attached to a flying harness. That sent "Wendy" flying across the stage and smashing into the scenery.

No one was hurt, and the actors can laugh at it now - along with a half a million others watching on YouTube.

Elizabeth Richter, who played Peter Pan, posted the video online so her classmates could see what the talk-of-the-school was. Now the viral video has landed the students a spot on the Tyra Banks show in March.
