 Children’s Theatre of Charleston’s The Theatre Project will be performing Laurie Bryant’s Unplugged Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28, 2017.

 

Could you live without technology for 30 days?  That’s the question in this smart and fun play by award-winning playwright Laurie Bryant.  Ten years ago, tiny North Creek, Wisconsin became “The Most Wired Town in America” thanks to a contest-winning essay from local resident Abigail Rickman.  As their prize, SOLOtech outfitted the entire town with state-of-the-art wireless technology.  Fast forward to now and the citizens of North Creek do absolutely everything virtually.  Everything.  But when Tom Morris, the founder of SOLOtech, learns that Abigail has sent back her SOLOpad, claiming life was better without it, he seeks Abigail out, concerned that there might be some truth in what she’s saying.  Despite the protests of his assistants, he offers the town $30 million dollars to unplug for an entire month.  With a host of “plugged in” teenagers, an online science teacher who relishes never having to dress professionally from the waist down, and Winston, a virtual hamster whose very life is dependent on SOLO technology, the residents of North Creek (and your audience) learn a valuable lesson about moderation and the time and place for technology in our lives.

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 and is now adapted for young performers.

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, a fierce Indian tribe, 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 book full of magic, warmth and adventure, Peter Pan JR. is the perfect show for the child in all of us… who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up. Peter Pan JR. is a dream come true for groups looking to bring magic to their stage and entertain countless families.
