Playhouse on the Square Celebrates its Latest Regional Premiere
Playhouse on the Square, in partnership with super sponsor Dr. Thomas Ratliff, offer a tender and loving look at a family's view of death, life, and and the allure of never growing up.
For Peter Pan on her 70th Birthday introduces us to Ann for whom playing Peter Pan at her hometown children's theatre is one of her fondest, most formative memories. Now, 50 years later, Neverland calls again, casting her and her siblings back to this faraway dreamscape where the refusal to grow up confronts the inevitability of growing old.
Donning the tights for Ann/Peter is icon Ann Marie Hall (Shakespeare in Love, August Osage County). Brothers Michael and John will be portrayed by Gordon Ginsburg (Other People's Happiness) and Sam Weakley (August Osage County, Hand to God). Theatre favorite Mark Pergolizzi (Little Women: The Broadway Musical, Junk) returns to the Playhouse on the Square stage as the ever menacing Captain Hook. The 2018 Ostrander Award Eugart Yerian Lifetime Achievement recipient, Tony Isbell (Death of a Streetcar Named Virginia Woolf: A Parody, Red) directs the play running in repertory with this year's production of Peter Pan.
