Drowsy Chaperone Cast List

Author By Administrator

Remember: The character you reveal when you see the cast list is far more important than the character you play in a production. Choose creation over destruction, always. ❤

Thank you to all of the amazing talent who auditioned! For those of you who did not make the cast, do not feel discouraged. Please don’t stop auditioning because you all have wonderful gifts to share with the East Ridge theatre program! If you are still interested in being involved in other areas of the production, please attend the tech meeting Thursday, September 5th at 3:15pm in the choir room.

Cast members! There will be a read through this Thursday at 3:30pm in the black box theatre. Make sure to bring a notebook and pencil.

Wendy and Peter Pan by Ella Hickson

Author By Carlson

Our spring play, Wendy & Peter Pan, pays homage to the original J.M. Barrie Peter Pan but brings some of the characters and content into the 21st century. Many of the beloved characters like Peter, Wendy, Tinkerbell, and more are still there but with a modern twist. Beyond battling the ruthless Captain Hook, these characters grapple with what it truly means to be lost and how resiliency and courage can transcend both death and time. On the production side of things, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re bringing in a professional fly company and, for the first time ever, we will have students flying on stage!
