Big, The Musical Ends Sunday at Theater Works at Peoria Center
For the first time in history, Theater Works has combined its MasterWorks and YouthWorks programs into one "huge" production. The show consists of forty-six actors ranging in age from nine to sixty years old.
"This is the best of what Theater Works offers collaborating in so many different a
spects," says Artistic Director, Robyn Allen. "We are so excited at the talent in this show from the actors to the production team, to choreography and more. Our set design team created the iconic giant piano with keys that actually depress and light-up," continued Allen. "And not to be outdone, Zoltar, the old carnival fortune-telling machine, rises from the stage as a animated puppet with eyes that glow and a mouth that fully functions - as he grants a little boys wish."
