Auditions for "Peter and the Starcatcher" Play.
Production Dates: February 10-25, 2017. Fridays through Sundays.
Callbacks at Thursday November 10.
This 2012 Tony-winning play is a wildly imaginative adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson's best-selling novels, telling how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. 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.
We welcome non-traditional casting - all roles are open to all races, and ethnic diversities! Available roles for females age 18 and older. Musical and acrobatic ability a plus, though not required for all roles.
Rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays beginning in late November, with the exception of the final two weeks of Tech, for which all will be called nearly every night of the week.
If you are auditioning:
If you have one, bring a theatrical resume and a headshot (professional quality not necessary) or recent face picture for the casting team.
Bring a written list of any and all remotely possible conflicts that you have or may have between auditions and February 25th.
Cold readings from the script will be provided. Each auditioner should expect to read 1-3 times. Anyone who feels their abilities at cold-reading do not display their actual acting abilities may bring a prepared monologue (no more than one minute).
Come wearing clothes and shoes you can comfortably and safely move in.
Lady Astor: Molly's parent. A Starcatcher on a secret mission for Queen Victoria. Astor loves Molly dearly but is perhaps guilty of placing the mission above her safety. Constantly paranoid about the security of top-secret conversation, Astor has trained Molly to converse in Dodo, Porpoise and Norse code (a Morse code-like system used by ancient Vikings.)
Mrs. Bumbrake: Molly's faithful Nanny, a prim and proper Englishwoman prone to alliteration. In the tradition of the Pantomime dame, the role is written to be portrayed by a male actor (but it is not necessary), who also plays Teacher: a wise and mysterious mermaid.
The ensemble cast also portrays mermaids, islanders and various other creatures, locations and people throughout the show.
