Randolph, NJ -The Brundage Park Playhouse put on a lively performance of Peter Pan Jr. for a packed house on Sunday.  The plays' opening night was on Friday, July 10 and it is running through next weekend with final curtain on July 26 at 2:00 pm. The remaining shows also include Friday July 24 at 8:00 p.m. and Sat. July 25 at 2:00 p.m. 

The production was directed by Brundage Playhouse veteran Mark Carovale who has been directing shows here for ten years going back to his first production which was The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.He has also appered in a production at the playhouse as recently as this year playing Tevya in Fiddler on the Roof. Carovale is flanked in support and direction by Nola Young who  seems to do a little of everything. 

Peter Pan Jr. is a similar show to Peter Pan except for few changes. According to Carovale, “In the film, the song "Never smile at a crocodile" is just underscored in the film; in our version there are lyrics.” This version is equally influenced by the classic J.M. Barrie book and the classic 1953 Disney film.

The cast of the play includes stellar lead performances by Tobin Todd as Peter Pan, Hope Kiel as Tinker bell, Julia Drahzal and stepping into the iconic villain role of Captain Hook was Akash Bhide.

The room was filled with laughter and cheers as the play went on and all the cast members gave it their all and put on a spectacular show. Carovale said,  “We had about 92 people at the first show and the turnouts have been steady the whole run.” 

The Brundage Park Playhouse puts on plays year round and has been in operation since 1979.  The plays are not age specific and Carovale said, “If the role is age specific, we will find someone who fits the age.”  

The next production for the Brundage Park Playhouse is the Kids Caberet which runs from Aug. 12 to Aug. 16.  The two plays that round out the years for the playhouse are Hairspray which opens Oct. 9 and runs until Oct. 25, and Carovale will be stepping back into the director’s chair with Scrooge: A Musical Christmas Carol, which will be coming this winter starting Dec. 4 and running through Dec. 13. 

Information about tickets and the upcoming shows can be found at www.Brundageparkplayhouse.org.
