Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET) opened its long-awaited world premiere of The Pretty Pants Bandit, a new Atlanta-born, pop-rock musical by Chase Peacock and Jessica De Maria, with a successful three-week run in Roswell.  

"How lucky are we to have such a high-caliber performing arts center right here in Roswell? The new show by Chase Peacock and Jessica De Maria was a pleasure. Not only did they have live music (a seven-piece band), but I also really enjoyed the choreography that went into the making of the show," says Julie Wojenski of Roswell.

Set against the economic and racial disparity of 1930s Miami and inspired by a true story, The Pretty Pants Bandit gives voice to the voiceless and empowers the powerless. Part heist adventure, part romantic comedy and all excitement - “Stick ‘em up and take ‘em down!” - The Pretty Pants Bandit is moving and deeply entertaining.  

The musical was directed by James Donadio, GET’s artistic director, with music direction by Alli Lingenfelter and choreography by Kari Twyman. Georgia Ensemble Theatre regularly commissions new works, usually by a local playwright. This is their first commissioned musical.
