Broadway Training Center of Westchester to Present PETER PAN, 4/15-17
Broadway Training Center of Westchester, one of the region's premier performing arts schools, will present the magical musical "Peter Pan" April 15-17th at the Irvington Town Hall Theater in Irvington, N.Y. The show will feature BTC's Ensemble program consisting of participants by Entrance Interview and Audition only.
Peter Pan, Broadway's timeless classic musical whisks you away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up! Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick Tinkerbell visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and with a sprinkle of pixie dust begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates, and of course the villainous Captain Hook. Featuring the iconic songs "I'm Flying," "I've Gotta Crow," "I Won't Grow Up," and "Never Never Land," and a rousing book full of magic, warmth, and adventure, Peter Pan is the perfect show for the entire family!
Co-Artistic Directors, Jason Brantman and Fiona Santos, often choose material that pushes students to work to the top of their imagination. Working hard alongside choreographer, Sarah Hicks, BTC's flying sequences should prove to be an innovative new spin on the timeless classic! Plus, BTC is delighted to continue partnering with Broadway Motion Design on Peter Pan. Projections have been an exciting way to accomplish the elements of magic and larger than life storytelling on previously performed productions of Mary Poppins and Big Fish; now we are thrilled to explore this complex production element on yet another terrific theater piece!
