The Star Bright Players fall production for 2021 will be the Broadway adaptation of the classic musical, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella. This is a contemporary take on the classic tale and features Rodgers & Hammerstein's most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It's Possible” and “Ten Minutes Ago,” alongside an up-to-date, hilarious and romantic libretto by Tony Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane. At its core, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella remains the heartfelt tale of the girl from the cinders who is forthright and kind as she tries to connect with her prince and change the prince into a better man.

The Rising Stars winter production for 2022 will be Peter Pan JR., the timeless Broadway classic musical that whisks you away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up! Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children 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, the fierce Brave Girls, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook. Featuring the iconic songs, "I'm Flying," "I've Gotta Crow," "I Won't Grow Up" and "Never Never Land," and a rousing script full of magic, warmth and adventure, Peter Pan JR. is the perfect show for the child in all of us.
