Peter Pan is a timeless musical full of magical moments, high-flying stunts and action-packed sword fights sure to “hook” audiences of all ages. Join Wendy, her brothers and Peter Pan as they seek adventure on the enchanted island of Neverland while battling Captain Hook and his band of pirates. An adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s classic story, this all-new stage production brings Peter Pan to new heights with a fantastic cast that includes Tony® Nominated actress Cathy Rigby in the title role. Rigby, who first played Peter Pan in 1990, continues to bring joy to the role 23 years later. Before playing “the boy who won’t grow up,” Rigby was an Olympic gymnast. In 2002, she also starred in the Broadway production of Seussical the Musical as “Cat-In-The-Hat.”
Starring alongside Ms. Rigby is Broadway’s Brent Barrett as Mr. Darling/Hook. Brent has appeared in Broadway’s Chicago, Annie Get Your Gun, and West Side Story as well as London’s West End. Joining them is Kim Crosby as Mrs. Darling, who played “Cinderella” in the original production of Sondheim’s Into the Woods and has also appeared in Guys and Dolls and Jerry’s Girls.
Before the Friday evening performance on February 15, the Palace Theater will host a 6pm dinner in the Poli Club, located on the theater’s mezzanine level. The three-course dinner, catered by Emily’s Catering Group, is $62.50 per person, which includes tax, service fees, coffee and tea. A cash bar is also available. Seating is limited and reservations can be made when buying tickets through the box office.
Since 1990, Peter Pan starring Cathy Rigby has made four appearances on Broadway. The show has received four Tony® Nominations including “Best Revival of a Musical” and “Best Actress in a Musical.” The production has also appeared on the A&E Television Network for which it received four Emmy Award Nominations and one Emmy Award.
Peter Pan is the third production in the Palace Theater’s 2012-2013 Webster Bank Broadway Series and is sponsored in part by Adam Broderick Salon and Spa and Waterbury Hospital’s “Thank God I’m Female” Women’s Wellness Forum.
