STARS PRESENT A CLASSIC FOR THIS FALL
El Campo High School STARS (Speech and Drama) proudly present, with special arrangement from Musical Theatre International (all other production material also supplied by MTI), a Musical Based on the play by SIR J.M. BARRIE, a magical adventure for all of those young at heart who refuse to grow up, Peter Pan November 21-23 (two performances pending football play-offs) at 7pm in the ECHS Auditorium.
Based on J.M. Barrie's classic tale and featuring an unforgettable score by Morris "Moose" Charlap and Jule Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Peter Pan is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. This high-flying Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years.
We are flying! This year ECHS STARS members will reach new heights with the flying effect assistance of Fly by Foy. ECHS STAR members are joined on stage in this production by special “little stars” from Hutchins, Northside, and El Campo Middle School. You will also find members of our community and faculty dancing a pirate jig or walking the plank!
Peter (played by junior, Manna Trevino) and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children; Wendy (played by junior Riley Respondek), Michael (played by freshman Claire Crowell), and John (played by junior Austin Viktorin) 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 (played by senior, Ryan Garcia) and his side-kick Smee (played by sophomore Teara Cooper).
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 child in all of us... who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up. The 2019 ECHS production of Peter Pan is directed by David Otradovsky and Katrese Skinner. Musical director is Nicholas Griger.
