The Department of Drama and Syracuse Stage recently concluded a successful run of their holiday co-production Peter Pan. The show, directed by Paul Barnes with choreography by Professor Anthony Salatino, featured a male Peter Pan: Department of Drama student Troy Hussmann '16.
“When you cast a male as Peter, it brings more truthfulness to the relationship between Peter and Wendy,” said Barnes. “Troy not only has the requisite boyishness and 'Lord of the Flies'-like wild child in him, but also can sing the role beautifully.”
In all, 25 Department of Drama students made up the cast, working with professional Equity actors. "It's just simply stunning,” wrote reviewer Tony Curulla on Syracuse.com.
