Peninsula Players Theatre announces its 84th season performing June 18 through Oct. 20, 2019.
A Trick of the Light, by Peter Moore, makes its world première June 18-July 7. Eddie is a 40-something guy who has love, comfort, stability, closeness and joy, but he feels he hasn’t accomplished anything of real significance. Then one day, he discovers a very unexpected and astonishing skill. He can become invisible. He has no idea where it came from or what to do about it, or even if he should do anything about it.
Agatha Christie’s inimitable detective, Miss Marple, makes her Peninsula Players debut when she searches for a killer in A Murder is Announced, July 10-28. It’s a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined inspector and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution.
Romance, music and even more thrills follow when Ghost the Musical takes the stage July 31-Aug. 18. This timeless musical fantasy about the power of love is by Bruce Joel Rubin, Dave Stewart, and Glen Ballard. Sam and Molly are a young couple whose connection takes a shocking turn after Sam’s untimely death. Trapped between two worlds, Sam refuses to leave Molly when he learns she is in grave danger.
The fourth selection of the season features a work by the most produced playwright in North America last year, Lauren Gunderson, who lagged behind only Shakespeare in the total number of plays produced in 2017. In her Silent Sky, performed Aug. 21-Sept. 1, a touching human story behind an important scientific discovery, Gunderson introduces audiences to Henrietta Swan Leavitt.
Closing the 2019 season is the Midwest première of George Washington’s Teeth, Sept. 4-Oct. 20, a new comedy by Mark St. Germain.
