  • Peter and the Starcatcher

    Fall Play
     
    Peter and the Starcatcher  
     
    A Play by Rick Elice
    Music by Wayne Barker
    Based on the Novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
     
    Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love.
     
    A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.
     
    Featuring a company of actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable characters, Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.

  • A Special Project - In Pursuit of Magic

    This October, Marist Theater will team up with the award-winning Serenbe Playhouse to create a thrilling and chilling evening of theater for the Halloween season.
     
    Artists from the education branch of Serenbe Playhouse will collaborate exclusively with Marist students on the creation of a fascinating piece of theater – to be performed at a unique location somewhere on the grounds of Marist School!  We will craft a theatrical experience around a piece – or pieces - of literature with the guidance of the English Department, and present it somewhere on campus:  could be at the cross creek property, could be in the arcade, could be in the garden – could be ANYWHERE! 
     
    Come one, come all, and help us create a chilling new first for Marist Theater!
     
    Tickets on sale:  Monday, October 16, 2018
    Performances:  Thursday and Saturday, October 26 & 28, 2017
    Audience:  Rated PG-13.  This will not be a “cute” Halloween story. 
     
  • Freaky Friday

    Spring Musical

    Freaky Friday

    Book by Bridget Carpenter
    Music by Tom Kitt
    Lyrics by Brian Yorkey

    When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to put things right again before mom’s big wedding.  Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney Films, is a hilarious, contemporary update to an American classic in which a mother and daughter really see what it is to be a family and experience each other’s lives first-hand, if only for a day.

    “Delightfully spunky” with “timeless appeal” (Variety), Freaky Friday features a new book by Bridget Carpenter (Parenthood) and an original pop/rock score by Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winners Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal).  This dynamic story puts a fresh new spin on a “polished, peppy, modern fairy tale” (The Washington Post).

    Marist School is thrilled to be one of a select group of schools in the country to produce this magical show as part of the Disney Theatrical Licensing Pilot Program!

    Performances:  Thursday – Saturday, March 22-24, 2018 at 7:30 PM and Saturday, March 24 at 2:00 PM

  • Seussical, Jr.!

    Foundations Musical
     
    Seussical, Jr.!
     
    Book by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty
    Music by Stephen Flaherty
    Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
    Co-Conceived by Eric Idle
    Based on the works of Dr. Seuss
     
    Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
     
    Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and all emerge triumphant!
