Barrie, Barrie Good: "Peter Pan," at the Timber Lake Playhouse through July 12
Written By: Mike Schulz

Holly Moss and Rosie Upton in Peter PanThere’s magic in the Timber Lake Playhouse’s Peter Pan that reached my inner child and set him dancing. Even knowing that Rosie Upton’s title character would fly, I still got chills when scenic designer Benjamin Lipinski’s grand windows were flung open and the forever-young boy floated through them. And that thrill only took a break during the production's intermission, otherwise staying with me during its entire two hours.

Cullen Rogers, Paige ManWaring, Brian Pauley, Judy Knudtson, Brigitte Ditmars, and Matt W. Miles in The Big MealPlaywright Dan LeFranc’s The Big Meal deserves every superlative I can, and will, use to praise it. The forward progression of his plot about the life of a couple from first meeting to final resting place is extraordinary, and Timber Lake Playhouse’s production does it justice. This is a presentation that tickles the funny bone, pulls the heartstrings, and turns on the waterworks. It is, quite frankly, emotionally stunning.

Turn Your Hips and Coif: "Hairspray," at the Timber Lake Playhouse through June 14

Sam Leicht, Rosie Upton, Eli Emmit, and Amelia Jo Parish in HairsprayGood gawd is the Timber Lake Playhouse’s Hairspray fun. I went into Saturday’s matinée with eager anticipation and left with a sense of thrilled enjoyment, floating on a cloud of happiness. Director Lili-Anne Brown’s production of this musical based on John Waters’ 1988 film is not only a helluva good time for us, but a rockin’ wild ride for Amelia Jo Parish’s Tracy Turnblad, as Hairspray's lead goes from overweight sideliner to local-dance-show star to racial-integration crusader in 1960s Baltimore.

You Know You Make Me Want to ... : "Shout! The Mod Musical," at the Timber Lake Playhouse through August 24

Caroline Murrah, Melissa Weyn, Daryn Harrell, Lexie Plath, and Allison Hunt in Shout! The Mod MusicalShout! The Mod Musical is not only the most tolerable musical revue I’ve seen to date, but also the most enjoyable. With more substance than The Taffetas and less forced plot than The Marvelous Wonderettes, this girl-group celebration of 1960s songs is both cohesive and a whole lot of fun, especially given the Timber Lake Playhouse’s current staging of it.
