We are proud to announce auditions for fall production of "Peter and the Starcatcher." The team especially seeks actors who enjoy comedy, improvisational acting, singing, and working together to create an immersive world from very little.

Show Synopsis:
A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain's cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk's precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

Character Breakdown:
(there will likely be doubling, and perhaps additional casting for an ensemble)
Accent Notes
* Boy (Peter), Ted and Prentiss should use normal voices with no added accent.
* Molly, Aster, Scott, and Brumbrake (or if you can do Scottish, even better!) should have upper class British accents.
* Black Stache, Grempkin, Mack, Smee, Slank, and Alf should have lower class (Cockney/Cornish/Yorkshire-type) accents.
* Sanchez should have a Spanish accent.
* Do your best!

Role # 1 - Peter Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
A boy who doesn't miss much. Nameless, homeless, and friendless at the beginning of the play, and a hero by the end. A survivor. More than anything in the world, he wants a home and a family. If he could grow up, he'd fall for Molly in a big way. But it'll never happen. English accent optional.

Role # 2 - Prentiss Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Ambitious, hyper-articulate, logical; yearns to be a leader, even as he knows in his heart that he never shall be one. A bit of a blowhard with just the teeny-tiniest touch of cowardice.

Age: from 18 to 25

Role # 3 - Ted Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Obsessed with food: the eating of, the fighting over, the dreaming about. A natural actor, an easy wit, perhaps a future poet. Called "Tubby" by Prentiss, though not due to girth, of which orphans, given their meager diets, have very little indeed.

Role # 4 - Leaonard Aster Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The very model of a modern Victorian English gentleman, loyal subject to the Queen, devoted father, faithful friend. And, not irrelevant to our story, Lord Aster is a Starcatcher, dedicated to protecting the Earth and all who dwell thereon from the awesome power of Starstuff.

Age: from 40 to 60
Ethnicity: Any -

Role # 5 - Molly Aster Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
A true leader at a time when girls are mostly followers. Will risk everything for the sake of Doing Right. Curious, intelligent, beginning to feel things she doesn't yet understand – romantic longings that revert to childish tantrums under pressure – because, after all, she's a thirteen-year-old kid. She'll be a great woman one day.

Searchable talent specs:
Gender: Female
Age: from 18 to 25
Ethnicity: Any -

Role # 6 - Mrs. Bumbrake Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Molly's nanny. British to the bone. Still has enough of her girlish charm to turn a sailor's head and leaven his dreams. Stiff in the lip, loose in the hip, fun on a ship. To be cast as male in a dress.

Age: from 30 to 60

Role # 7 - Alf Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
An old sea dog. Something about him appeals to the feminine sensibility – might be his bowlegs, his saucy gait, or his kind heart.

Age: from 30 to 60
Ethnicity: Any -

Role # 8 - Black Stache Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Long after everyone else got out of the pirate business, Black Stache continues to terrorize the seven seas in search of a hero worthy of his villainy. Famous for his face foliage, he started shaving at age ten, had a bushy handlebar by eleven, and the blood of twenty crews on his hands by twelve. Heartless and hirsute, suspiciously well read, partial to the poetical and theatrical, and given to a ferocity from which no good shall ever spring.

Role # 9 - Smee Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
First mate to Black Stache. Single-mindedly dedicated to his Captain's every whim. His motto: "'Tis good to be busy."

Role # 10 - Bill Slank Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The Neverland's vicious captain, without the skill or quality to lead anyone but himself, and always into disaster. A greedy bastard who'd sell his own mother for a ship to command and send boys to their doom for the favor of those who would use Starstuff for personal gain, global domination, or worse. An orphan, too.

Role # 11 - Robert Falcon Scott Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Role # 12 - Grempkin Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The mean and malodorous schoolmaster of St. Norbert's Orphanage for Lost Boys. Likes to keep his boys in the dark, as sunlight is known to feed rebellious notions, and on account of the preference in certain quarters for lads that are white and pasty.
