YT—Doing What Comes Magically

H

appy with the way things are— or would things go better with a little transformation? Maybe that shy farm girl can take on a wicked witch. Can that puppet get the wood out and become a real-live boy? Should that sweet girl refashion herself as a leather-jacketed bombshell? Peninsula Youth Theatre’s 2010-11 CenterStage season offers five full-length musicals in which the characters are ch-ch-ch-changing—and sometimes with the kind of help you only get from the Blue Fairy or a wonderful wizard. PYT also will present eight Stories on Stage dramatizations—three of them world premieres. THE WIZARD OF OZ PYT opens its 19th season with the classic story written by L. Frank Baum at the start of the 20th Century and brought to Hollywood immortality with Judy Garland in 1939. In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy soars over the rainbow to Oz, where three friends, a wicked witch and a wonderful wizard teach her to appreciate all she has at home. This delightful stage adaptation features all of the music from the beloved film by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg including “Over the Rainbow,” “If I Only Had a Brain” and “Follow the Yellow Brick Road.” November 13–21 on MainStage. ANNIE GET YOUR GUN PYT’s next show features a legendary score by the great Irving Berlin. Annie Oakley—Little Sure Shot, as she was dubbed by Sitting Bull bisected the edge of a playing card with a bullet at 30 paces and once shot

a cigarette out of the Austrian kaiser’s mouth. She met her match in Frank Butler, even as she creamed him in a shooting contest. This “best musical revival” packs in the romance and the rootin’-tootin’ sharpshootin’ with a Wild West show-within-a-show. Berlin’s “greatest achievement in theater,” the classic score includes “Anything You Can Do,” “I Got the Sun in the Morning” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business.” March 5–13 on MainStage. MY SON PINOCCHIO: GEPPETTO’S MUSICAL TALE In the beloved classic “Pinocchio,” the Blue Fairy enters toymaker Geppetto’s lonely life and grants his wish by making a puppet come to life. But Geppetto isn’t prepared for fatherhood—and this version of the story begins with him wanting to give the troublesome puppet back! Disney’s My Son Pinocchio: Geppetto’s Musical Tale features a score by Tony-winning composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Enchanted, Pocahontas, and Godspell). It also samples songs from the Disney’s 1940 classic Pinocchio, including “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings.” May 14–22 on MainStage.

PYT’s teens will conclude the season with Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey’s Grease. Join the Pink Ladies and T-Birds as they hand-jive their way through their senior year at Rydell high. Danny and Sandy find true “Summer Lovin’,” but when school starts it seems their differences might rip them apart. Grease was nominated for seven Tony awards when it premiered in 1972. The 1978 movie version, starring John Travolta and Oliva NewtonJohn, created one of history’s best-selling soundtracks. July 30–August 7 on MainStage.

For the 13th consecutive year, PYT will offer Stories on Stage on the MVCPA’s intimate SecondStage. These simple 45-minute dramatizations of acclaimed children’s literature are designed to foster PREVIEW MAGAZINE • FALL/WINTER 2010/11

A Multicultural Celebration

October 6 through October 31 All previews at 8 pm, Tuesday & Wednesday at 7:30 pm Thursday & Friday at 8 pm Saturday at 2 and/or 8 pm Sunday at 2 and/or 7 pm

Sunday, October 3 at 1:30 pm This event is the first part of Sunday Arts Live, a performance series celebrating National Arts and Oriki Theatre Humanities Month in October 2010. The show features Oriki Theatre (African drums), Kaisahan (Filipino dance), Steve Lin (classical guitar), Grupo Folklorico Los Laureles (Mexican folkloric dance), Halau Na Wai Ola (Hawaiian dance), and films produced by Freestyle Academy students.

Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts’ recent Broadway success is a fresh-baked tale of friendship and redemption in a crumbling donut dispensary on Chicago’s North Side. Warm, funny, and deeply moving, it introduces an eager new counterman— an African American kid whose bright ideas mask a cloudy past. Setting out to refurbish the coffee shop and its long-stale proprietor, he encounters first a wall of resistance then a well of unexpected heart. Regional Premiere by Tracy Letts. Contains mature language. “A soulful play, full of humor and humanity.” (Variety)

SecondStage I Free (Limited seating, first come, first served on day of event only. No advance seating available)
