Centenary Theatre Program (CTP) and Stage Center (SC) proudly announce their co-production of the smash-hit Broadway musical play, Peter and the Starcatcher. The new production will open March 17, 2022 for a one-week run at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse on the Centenary College Campus. Tickets go on sale Monday, February 28. You can purchase tickets online at StageCenterLA.com or call/text (318) 218-9978.
Peter and the Starcatcher by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker, and based on the best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, is the “absurdly funny, fantastical story” (Entertainment Weekly) that upends the century-old tale of how a miserable orphan boy becomes the legendary Peter Pan. In this 5 time Tony®-winning play, a dozen brilliant actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters using their enormous talent, ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination. This swashbuckling grownup prequel to Peter Pan will have you hooked from the moment you let your imagination take flight.
Mounting this epic production marks a new collaboration between CTP and SC. The two theatre groups are combining their resources and creative talent to make this actor-driven show a reality. “This is a huge effort,” said Don Hooper, Centenary Theatre department chair. “We’re excited about working with Stage Center and creating a fantastic experience for our students and our audience.”
Leading the ensemble cast will be Charlie Roppolo as Black Stache, Theresa Johnson as Molly Aster, and A.R. Rossomando as Peter! They will be joined onstage by Tyler Garrett, Emma Greer, Channing Hall, Camren Hohn, Cassidy Jones, Christian Perkins, Kallie Pierce, Sabrina Scott, Theo Soliz, and Tucker “PJ” Souther, playing over 100 unforgettable characters in this knock-out play with music performed live by Seth Taylor and Rhonda Honea.
Performances will be held at Marjorie Lyons Playhouse on the campus of Centenary College. You can catch the show at 7:30pm on March 17 and 18, 2pm and 7:30pm on March 19, and 2pm on March 20. Tickets are $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, and $15 for students.
