PETER PAN, THE MUSICAL, Georgetown Palace Theatre, November 15 - December 30, 2013

Georgetown Palace Theatre TX
Peter Pan, The Musical, flies onto the Springer Memorial Stage of the Historic Palace Theatre in Georgetown from November 15 to December 30 for your holiday enjoyment! The charm of Sir J.M. Barrie’s 1904 play brings you that lovable creature, Peter Pan, along with Tinker Bell, the children (Wendy, Michael, and John), plus Indians and Pirates! Combine these delightful characters with show-stopping songs such as I Won’t Grow Up, I’m Flying, and Never Never Land, and you have a timeless classic that has become one of the world’s most celebrated musicals. (The music is mostly by Mark Charlap, with additional music by Jule Styne; and most of the lyrics were written by Carolyn Leigh, with additional lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green.) Seven weekends plus several December weeknight performances bring 25 opportunities to experience the joy of this musical adventure at Georgetown’s Historic Palace Theatre!

Ron Watson, on the Palace Staff as full-time Technical Director, brings his talent and experience to the table as Director of Peter Pan, The Musical, having directed (among many other successful musicals) The Wizard of Oz in 2011 and South Pacific in 2013. Jesee Smart, who also choreographed the great dance moves in the Palace’s South Pacific, brings her flair and expertise to the job of Choreographer for Peter Pan, The Musical. Vocal Director Michelle Hache excelled in the role of ‘Bloody Mary’ in South Pacific and is now a valued vocal instructor in the Palace’s Education Program. Rose Yurcina, most notably seen as ‘Dorothy’ in The Wizard of Oz at the Palace, is flying again as Peter Pan! Scott Shipman, ‘Mr. Trevor Graydon’ in the Palace’s Thoroughly Modern Millie, brings acting credits from Austin (Zach Theater and Austin Lyric Opera) as well as the Shakespeare Institute in England.

The Palace’s 2013-2014 All-Star Season has two very generous sponsors: HEB and the Texas Commission on the Arts. In addition, Landreth Construction, an experienced concrete contractor in Round Rock and the Austin area, is a significant sponsor of Peter Pan, The Musical.
