This Tony-winning play with music (based on the best-selling novels) upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan boy becomes the legendary Peter Pan.  From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.  (Recommended for ages 10+)

Performance Dates:
July 31-Aug, 3, Aug. 7-10 at 7:30, Aug. 4 & 11 at 2:00.

Director's Note:
Peter and the Starcatcher is considered to be a play with some music, but it is not considered a musical. While we will not require singing or dance auditions, we may ask you sing us a ditty in your best pirate voice.  It is more important for us to find great actors who understand this broad acting style and have excellent comic timing.  ALL actors are onstage for MOST of the time.  While we feel it is important to stick with the author's indicated gender for these characters, we are definitely open to ethnic diversity for all roles.

Character Breakdown

Black Stache
A very flamboyant pirate, Black Stache terrorizes the seven seas in search of a worthy adversary. Heartless and snobby, he is partial to the poetical and theatrical; and also not terribly bright. Actor must have great comedic timing and not afraid to act in a big, broad, and sometimes over-the-top style.

Molly Aster
A young girl and Starcatcher apprentice, Molly is taken aboard the ship Neverland as precious cargo.
Curious and intelligent, she is only beginning to understand the confusing romantic longings that come
with her age. She will risk anything for the sake of what is right.  Molly is in her early-mid teens, but
must be played by an adult actor (18+).

A lonely and hardened orphan who doesn't miss much, Peter is nameless, homeless, and friendless at
the beginning of the play, and a hero by the end. He wants a home and a family more than anything,
and dreams of a life of being free. Looking for an actor who can be genuinely earnest and sweet, while
also heroic.  Boy/Peter is in his early-mid teens, but must be played by an adult actor (18+).

Grempkin/Mack/Sanchez/Fighting Prawn
One male actor will play all of these roles.  Grempkin is the schoolmaster of St. Norbert's Orphanage for Lost Boys and he is mean and malodorous. Mack wants to be anywhere else but under Bill Slank’s command.  Sanchez is a hard-working Spanish pirate having an identity crisis. Fighting Prawn is King of the Mollusk. He has vengefully murdered any English person who dared set foot on his island.

Mrs. Bumbrake/Teacher

A male actor will play Molly's nanny who has the duty of teaching Molly about womanhood.  Formerly a salmon, Teacher is now an ancient, knowledgeable mermaid.

Bill Slank/Hawking Clam
One actor will play both roles.  Bill Slank is the vicious captain of the good ship, Neverland. Bill does not possess the capacity to lead anyone but himself.    Hawking Clam is the son of Fighting Prawn.

Black Stache's first mate. He is single-mindedly dedicated to his captain's every whim.

An orphan, Prentiss is ambitious, hyper articulate, and logical. He yearns to be leader, even when he
knows in his heart that he'll never be one. He can also be a bit of a blowhard with a touch of cowardice.  Prentiss is in his early-mid teens, but must be played by an adult actor (18+).

A seafarer; an old sea dog who is proud of his tenure. His kind heart gives him an appeal to the feminine
sensibility. The ladies like him.

Lord Leonard Aster
Molly's father, a loyal subject to the Queen. The very model of a Victorian English gentleman, he is a
faithful friend and a secret Starcatcher.

Captain Robert Falcon Scott
Lord Aster's old school friend, the captain of the Wasp, Britain's fastest frigate. Lives with nautical
bravura and heroic patriotism.

An orphan obsessed with food. A natural performer, Ted has an easy wit and is quite poetic with
language.  Ted is in his early-mid teens, but must be played by an adult actor (18+).
