Arizona Broadway Theatre Presents the Classic Broadway Musical PETER PAN, 7/11-8/17
Based on the play by James M. Barrie, the fantastical, family-friendly musical is a delight for children of all ages as it follows Peter, played by returning favorite David Errigo Jr. (Into the Woods, Footloose) and the Darling Family's three children on the adventure of a lifetime through the magical world of Neverland. Together, along with help from Peter's gang of Lost Boys and some pixie dust from Tinker Bell, the group of adventurers take on a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook - played by ABT's executive producer Kiel Klaphake (Phantom, Annie Get Your Gun).
"In a world of computer generated effects and reality television, theatre simply asks us to be present and believe in the truth of the shared experience," said Mace Archer, director of Peter Pan. "This show, more than any other play, asks you to be part of its happy ending, and believe in the power of wonder, imagination and magic."
Archer is a returning part of the creative team, having previously directed Jekyll and Hyde, Annie Get Your Gun and Phantom. He will lead Klaphake and Errigo Jr. along with a large cast of returning and new performers including Sarah Powell (Seven Brides..., Sound of Music) as Wendy Darling, Renee Kathleen Koher (Kiss Me Kate, Tarzan) as Mrs. Darling/Mermaid and newcomer Jeremy Crawford as Smee. The complete list of performers can be found at azbroadway.org.
William Boles joins the ABT family as the production's scenic designer, and Christianne Myers delivers the stunning costume design. Internationally known ZFX Flying Effects will provide the professional soaring magic to bring the timeless tale of Peter Pan to life.
