Marian Rice Players (MRP) is the performing arts company of Marian and Brother Rice High Schools. This group stages a play each fall and a musical each spring in the Marian auditorium. Outstanding performances include not only the talent of the student actors, but the dedication and skills of stage crews, costume committees, lighting staffs, production people, and the many other support groups necessary for producing excellent theater. Membership is open to Marian and Brother Rice students.
The Marian-Rice Players is pleased to present the high-flying family musical, Peter Pan on March 26-29, 2015. This high-flying TONY Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years.
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.
The Marian-Rice Players has teamed up with “Flying by Foy” for the flying sequences in this production. “Flying by Foy” is Broadway's premiere theatrical "flying service" which hoists actors far above the stage. Their flying apparatus actually originated with Mary Martin's first "Peter Pan" production at the Winter Garden in 1954. Foy was also behind the recent television production of “Peter Pan” starring Allison Williams.
We hope you will plan to fly away with us to Neverland for a swashbuckling epic that delivers non-stop action, spell binding music and stunning choreography.
