The Santa Barbara Theatre has announced the cast for its upcoming production of Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie’s classic fantasy play with the musical score by Leonard Bernstein.

Performances will be at the Lobero Theatre Dec. 17-28.

“We are thrilled to have such a great company of actors for Peter Pan,” said Albert Ihde, the play’s director and SBT’s producing director. “Many will be familiar to Santa Barbara audiences, with several appearing here for the first time.”
Newcomers to Santa Barbara include two of the leads: Corina Boettger as Peter Pan and Sarah Bierstock as Wendy.
Playing the dual roles of Mr. Darling and Captain Hook is Robert Yacko, who appeared in SBT’s A Magical Musical Tour and in Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing at the Ensemble Theatre in 2004. 
Carolyn Hennesy plays Mrs. Darling. Hennesy was in SBT’s A Magical Musical Tour last season and Two Rooms in 2006.

Other actors from Santa Barbara include Angelica Lawrence as Tiger Lily and Deborah Bertling as Liza.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
