SHORT SYNOPSIS: This is a highly theatrical re-imagining of the origin story of Peter Pan. All actors play multiple roles in this story-theatre style tale of an orphan and his friend, a fabled “starcatcher” as they battle pirates, mermaids and unscrupulous seafarers and bureaucrats. Highly physical, broad comedians are required to embody a variety of narrators, characters, props and scene pieces and bring the magic to life.

CASTING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:
NOTE:
All characters will double as other characters (even if not listed). British accents are required and other accents couldn’t hurt. I am open to casting either gender in all roles (but they will be playing the listed sex) and encourage all nationalities, ethnicities, ages and body types to audition. In short, I’m casting an acting ensemble that will melt into whatever character or theatrical need we can imagine.

BLACK STACHE (Male, 20s-30s) A fearsome pirate in search of a hero worthy of his villainy; highly flamboyant and theatrical

MOLLY (Female, 13-early 20s) A starcatcher in training; a born leader; tough, romantic, and fearless

BOY/PETER (Male, 13-early 20s) A somewhat damaged orphan who finds the hero inside himself

GREMPKIN/MACK/SANCHEZ/FIGHTING PRAWN (Male, 20s-50s) An evil schoolmaster, a lousy sailor, a pirate, and the King of the Mollusks

MRS. BUMBRAKE/TEACHER (Female, 20s-60s) Molly’s still attractive nanny and an ancient mermaid

SLANK/HAWKING CLAM (Male, 20s-40s) A vicious sea captain and the heir apparent to the Mollusk throne

SMEE (Male, 20s-60s) First mate to Black Stache; a loyal, hardworking, if not so bright, pirate

PRENTISS (Male, teens to 20s) One of Peter’s fellow orphans; yearning to be a leader, but a bit of a coward

ALF (Male, 40s-60s) An old sea dog, smitten with Mrs. Bumbrake; tough and loyal, but guided by his innate morality

LORD ASTER (Male, 40s-60s) Molly’s father, a starcatcher and the very model of a Victorian English gentleman

CAPTAIN ROBERT FALCON SCOTT (Male, 20s-40s) The legendary explorer who eventually dies on his expedition to the South Pole; currently the Captain of the fastest frigate in the British navy.

TED (Male, teens-early 20s) The third orphan of the triumvirate; called Tubby (but not necessarily heavy). He has a love of everything edible.
