This is an ensemble based show, with almost every actor playing multiple roles, and/or serving as a narrator. This show is not a musical, but there are musical interludes and songs within the script. All actors must be comfortable with singing, and have some musical experience. Some actors may be asked to play instruments as well. Please note on your audition form if you play any instruments; specifically the guitar, piano, fiddle, or ukelele. Possible doubling listed below, but may change based on needs of the show.

Black Stache

Gender: Male
Age: 30 to 50

Molly Aster
A young girl and Starcatcher apprentice who is taken aboard the Neverland as precious cargo. Curious and intelligent, she is only beginning to understand the confusing romantic longings that come with her age. She will risk anything for the sake of what is right. Strong personality and convictions.
Gender: Female
Age: 17 to 25

Boy/Peter
A lonely and hardened orphan who doesn't miss much. Nameless, homeless, and friendless at the beginning of the play and a hero by the end. He wants a home and a family more than anything, and dreams of a life of being free. Must have a special something lurking below the surface.
Gender: Male
Age: 17 to 25

Grempkin
The schoolmaster of St. Norbert's Orphanage for Lost Boys. Mean and malodorous, he revels in keeping his boys in the dark and malnourished. Optional Doublings include: FIGHTING PRAWN; MACK; SÁNCHEZ.
Gender: Male
Age: 30 to 60

Mrs. Bumbrake
Molly's nanny, a stereotypical British cad and outfitted with the duty of teaching Molly about womanhood. She still has enough charm in her age to attract a sailor or two. Optional Doubling as TEACHER.
Gender: Male or Female
Age: 30 to 60

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. Greedy enough to send boys to their doom for the chance of gaining starstuff. Optional Doubling as HAWKING CLAM.
Gender: Male
Age: 35 to 55

Smee
Black Stache's first mate. He is single-mindedly dedicated to his captain's every whim. Should be likeable, with a bit of charm.
Gender: Male
Age: 25 to 55

Prentiss
An orphan, ambitious, hyper articulate, and logical. He yearns to be leader, even when he knows in his heart that he'll never be one. A bit of a blowhard with a touch of cowardice.
Gender: Male
Age: 17 to 25

Alf
A seafarer, an old sea dog proud of his tenure. His kind heart gives him an appeal to the feminine sensibility.
Gender: Male
Age: 40 to 65

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.
Gender: Male
Age: 30 to 45

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.
