Children Theatre Casting Call for "Peter and the Starcatcher"

Oklahoma City, OK, United States
ID: 571205Exp: 8/2/2024
Description:

"Peter and the Starcatcher". Please see the details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE ACCEPTED. About the project: In this prequel to Peter Pan, 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. Additional info: For the initial audition, actors should be prepared to deliver a 1-2 minute comedic monologue. Directors are looking for an ensemble of 15-20 actors with a gift for comic theatricality. The show is a high-energy physical piece. Willingness to sweat in pursuit of good storytelling is a must. Most characters will have at least a British dialect. (Directors can probably make use of any solid UK accent: RP, northern England, Cockney, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, etc) The ability to switch seamlessly between dialects/characters is a plus. There is some singing in the show, but it is generally of a nature that vocal talent will be secondary to volume, humor, and character. Callbacks will consist of cold readings from the script and may include basic singing and movement auditions. Audition Callbacks are Sun Aug 4 from 2-5 pm. Rehearsals: Start August 13 (Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:00 - 9:30 PM, Saturdays 1:00 - 5:00 PM, Tech Week October 6-10). Performances: October 11-13, 18-20 If interested, please apply.

Molly AsterFemale13-18 y.o.All ethnicities

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.

Boy/PeterMale13-18 y.o.All ethnicities

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.

PrentissFemale13-18 y.o.All ethnicities

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.
