Peacock Players Season 44

Celebrating Women Center Stage

Peacock Players, New Hampshire’s premiere award-winning youth theatre, is proud to present a Mainstage season of works that feature leading female characters.

In burning support of current movements toward empowerment and equality for women, we collectively wanted to produce an entire theatre season that promotes strong relevant female characters that overcome adversity through discovering their own bravery, embracing their own uniqueness, and learning the importance of sisterhood.

Peacock Players is dedicated to showcasing the extraordinary and wide-ranging talent of our students and resident theatre artists. Our community of theatre-makers is proud to put the spotlight on the inspiring stories and journeys of the remarkable female leading characters highlighted in these plays and musicals.

“The work we mount on our Mainstage sends subtle and not-so subtle messages to our students and our audiences,” says Artistic Director Keith Weirich. “And exploring the strong actions and powerful voices of an entire season of leading female characters is a message worth sharing.”
