Theatre 360 presents Peter and the Starcatcher, the five-time Tony-winning show that The New York Times called “the most exhilarating storytelling on Broadway in decades.” When starcatcher-in-training Molly meets an orphan boy longing for a home, they embark on the adventure of a lifetime.

Character Breakdown
List is from the original Broadway show. Our casting may vary. 

Black Stache
A notorious pirate, terrorizing the seven seas in search of a worthy adversary. Heartless, hirsute, and suspiciously well read. Partial to the poetical and theatrical, which causes him to behave quite flamboyantly.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Smee
Black Stache’s first mate. He is single-mindedly dedicated to his captain’s every whim.

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.

Alf
A seafarer, an old sea dog proud of his tenure. His kind heart gives him an appeal to the feminine sensibility.

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.

Ted
An orphan obsessed with food. A natural performer with easy wit and quite poetic language.

Ensemble
Sailors; Seamen; Seafarers; Orphans; Pirates; Mermaids; Mollusks; Narrators

Audition Tips

Definition: A practical demonstration of a performer’s suitability and skill Just like brown paper packages tied up with string, auditions are everybody’s favorite thing.   Well…they can be a fun and exciting event if you come prepared and ready to go. HERE’S WHAT WE MEAN:

  • Know the show you’re auditioning for by doing research—Can you watch it? Listen to it? Read it? Then do it! In all cases the audition requirements pertain to the needs of the show.
  • Most auditions have specific requirements. Be sure to follow these. For instance, if you’re asked to perform 32 bars of a classic musical theatre song, don’t sing 16 bars of a contemporary musical theatre song.  Or if asked to prepare a short humorous monologue, don’t prepare a tragedy.
  • Prepare. Practice. Repeat. And repeat. And repeat. And repeat…!

T360 AUDITIONS ARE RUN EXACTLY LIKE PROFESSIONAL AUDITIONS:

  • Performers must schedule an audition time
  • Have their required materials memorized and prepared
  • Come dressed like you want the job (but no costumes!)
  • Have fun and knock it out of the park!
  • Also make sure you’ve checked the rehearsal and performance schedule so you know if your life has time for the production.

At T360 when casting young performers we take into account the student’s level of enthusiasm, commitment, and discipline. All of these components—in addition to being easy to work with—are vital to putting on a production.

AFTER THE AUDITION: If you’ve prepared and presented yourself and your material to the best of your ability, then congratulations! Be proud of yourself. Resist second-guessing yourself and thinking, “Oooh, I should have…” Casting is now in the hands of the production staff. It will help you to know that each person sitting at the casting table has been where you were many times and they understand that what you’ve just done is extremely difficult. We are your staunchest champions and are proud of you for being bold and auditioning.

BEING CAST: Each and every role—regardless of size—is crucial to the show, therefore every actor cast is vitally important. That said an actor is expected to treat the role as important as it is. No student is indispensable and everyone must support each other and work together to ensure a performance of which everyone can be proud.   Let’s work hard, create, and have fun!
