eninsula Youth Theatre’s 2011-12 Season celebrates the beloved local institution’s 20th Anniversary with an impressive selection of family-friendly musical theatre classics both new and old. Whether rising up to the “heaviside layer”, finding a prince or making your dreams come true, the shows in PYT’s 2011-12 Anniversary Season will give you something to celebrate!

CATS Opening PYT’s 20th Anniversary Season is the musical theatre powerhouse and family favorite— Cats. A whirlwind of exuberant dance punctuated by Andrew Lloyd Weber’s musical score, this vibrant tale of Jellicle Cats and their annual ball will leave audiences breathless. This multiple Tony Award-winner is based on T.S. Elliot’s work “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.” Directed and choreographed by local favorite Alex Acevedo. On MainStage November 12–20. CINDERELLA In the classic Rogers and Hammerstein rendition of one of the most enduring fairy tales, Cinderella overcomes a life of servitude at the hands of her evil stepmother and wicked stepsisters. With help from her Fairy Godmother, she finds true love at the ball and learns that sometimes dreams really do come true. Originally written for television, Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella has been retold on both stage and screen for over 50 years and remains one of the most beloved versions of the classic tale. PYT Artistic Director Marc DeSaulnier directs. On MainStage March 3–11. JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT The first full scale musical by Broadway legends Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice, the 1970s’ musical theatre classic Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat recounts the biblical story of the life and struggles of Joseph. Jealous of Joseph and his special coat, his brothers sell him into slavery in Egypt, where his gift for interpreting dreams endears him to the Pharoah. Vibrancy and joy characterize this timeless musical tale of perseverance, redemption and forgiveness. PYT favorite Katie O’Bryon directs and choreographs this fun, fantastic show. On MainStage May 12–20.

ABOUT PYT

A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD For its Young Stage production, PYT presents a company premiere—A Year With Frog and Toad. PYT Alumna Ernestine Balisi directs Arnold Lobel’s beautiful children’s book brought to life in this sparkling musical adaptation where two best friends discover the wonders of everyday life over the course of a year. This charming tale of friendship is filled with engaging music that will appeal to audiences of all ages. On MainStage July 14–22.

Founded in 1992, PYT, a Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts’ Home Company, provides outstanding theatrical learning experiences that develop leadership, emphasize responsibility and foster teamwork in a supportive, respectful environment. In addition to its productions, PYT offers year-round classes in acting, singing and dancing for children ages 3–18 at its Mountain View studios, and an extensive summer camp program in Mountain View, Los Altos, Palo Alto and Saratoga. Through its Play in a Box program, PYT also brings after-school drama classes to local elementary schools. n COVER PHOTO: Peninsula Youth Theatre’s Cats

HAIRSPRAY PYT’s Teens close the 20th Anniversary Season with a highly-anticipated production of Hairspray. Set against the backdrop of segregated Baltimore circa 1962, Hairspray tells the story of plus-sized Tracy Tumblad’s quest to dance her way into the heart of teen idol Link Larkin, until her sense of social justice sends her on a very different path. In this hilarious romp through the early ’60s filled with toe-tapping songs such as “I’m a Big Girl Now” audiences will know that they “Can’t Stop the Beat!” This hugely popular musical captivated Broadway and the 2007 film version starring John Travolta was a box office smash. PYT’s production will be directed by the fabulous Meg Fischer. On MainStage July 28 – August 5.
