Get ready for a show that's as much fun to perform as it is to see! Stage 62 will hold auditions for PETER AND THE STARCATCHER (the prequel to the Peter Pan story) on March 19 and 20 from 7:00 — 9:00 pm in the Studio at the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall. Callback auditions will be held as needed on Tuesday March 21 at 7:00 pm.
Performance dates are Thursday through Saturday May 11-13 and 18-20 at 8 pm, and Sunday matinees May 14 and 21 at 2 pm.
Auditioners should come prepared with a one-minute comedic monologue. We're looking for 12 players ages 18 and up ready to be on stage constantly for a rollicking good time: one female and 11 males covering an age range young enough to read as teen orphan boys, and old enough to cover the coterie of over-the-top seafaring English heroes and villains. Casting for the following roles:
BLACK STACHE: A notorious but suspiciously well-read pirate, terrorizing the seven seas in search of a worthy adversary. Gender: Male.
MOLLY ASTER: A young girl and Starcatcher apprentice. Curious and intelligent, she will risk anything for the sake of what is right. Gender: Female. Age: plays young teens.
BOY/PETER: A lonely and hardened orphan, nameless and friendless at the beginning and a hero by the end. Gender: Male. Age: Plays young teens.
GREMPKIN: The mean and malodorous schoolmaster of St. Norbert's Orphanage for Lost Boys; doublings include: FIGHTING PRAWN; MACK; SÁNCHEZ. Gender: Male
MRS. BUMBRAKE: Molly's nanny, a stereotypical British cad who still has enough charm in her age to attract a sailor or two. Doubling as TEACHER. Gender: Male
BILL SLANK: The vicious orphaned captain of the Neverland. Does not possess the capacity to lead anyone but himself, which puts himself constantly in disaster. Doubles as HAWKING CLAM. Gender: Male
SMEE: Black Stache's first mate, single-mindedly dedicated to his captain's every whim. Male.
PRENTISS: An orphan boy, ambitious, hyper articulate, and a bit of a blowhard with a touch of cowardice. Gender: Male. Age: Plays young teens
ALF: A seafarer, an old sea dog proud of his tenure. His kind heart gives him an appeal to the feminine sensibility.
LORD LEONARD ASTER: Molly's father, a loyal subject to the Queen and the very model of a Victorian English gentleman. Male.
CAPTAIN ROBERT FALCON SCOTT: Lord Aster's old school friend; lives with nautical bravura and heroic patriotism.
TED: An orphan boy obsessed with food with a knack for poetic language
Gender: Male. Age: Plays young teens
