The Neverland you never knew. This Tony award winning show uses imaginative storytelling and boundless creativity to tell the comic and epic origin story of Peter Pan. Starcatcher apprentice Molly, Peter and their friends are hunted by marauding pirates and their comically eccentric captain, BlackStache as they race to protect a trunk of magical "Starstuff." Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the bonds of friendship, duty, love and family. This is a play with music (not a full musical), and has a few leading singing roles. This promo link gives an idea of the style of the show: LINK
Molly Aster - (female) A young teenage girl and Starcatcher apprentice. Curious and intelligent, she is only beginning to understand the confusing romantic longings that come with her age. Strong singer.
Boy/Peter - (male) A lonely and hardened orphan who wants a home and a family. He is nameless and friendless at the beginning of the play and a hero by the end.
Black Stache - A notorious pirate, in search of a worthy adversary who is partial to the poetic and theatrical. Strong verbal and physical comedic skills, character singer.
Mrs. Bumbrake - A proper British nanny who teaches Molly about womanhood. Strong verbal and physical comedic skills, character singer.
Bill Slank - The nasty, greedy and cruel captain of the Neverland who steals the Queen’s secret treasure of starstuff.
Smee - Black Stache's dimwitted first mate and willing to participate in his captain’s hare-brained schemes. Strong physical comedy, character singer.
Ted - An orphan obsessed with food with an easy wit and poetic language. Character singer.
Prentiss - An ambitious orphan that yearns to be a leader but is a coward. Character singer.
Alf - A salty old sailor on the Neverland, who falls in love with Mrs. Bumbrake. Character singer.
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.
Fighting Prawn: The fierce chief of the tribe of Mollusk Islanders, who was sold into slavery in England as a boy. He speaks almost exclusively in Italian cooking terms.
Ensemble - plays multiple supporting roles and characters throughout the show, including…
Narrators; Sailors; Seafarers; Orphans; Pirates; Mermaids; Mollusks; Creatures; Hurricane Storm; etc.
