We welcome non-traditional casting – all roles are open to all sexes, races, abilities, and ethnic diversities! All
actors will double in roles. Actors should have the ability to play a number of characters have a very wide age range. Musical and acrobatic ability a plus, though not required for all roles. All actors serve variously as sailors, seamen, orphans, pirates, mermaids, Mollusks, ships, doors, scenery, and narrators.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The characters Prentiss, Peter, Molly, and Ted are in their early-mid teens who are usually played by older actors. I am open to casting younger actors, if we find the right casting choices for these roles.
A notorious and very flamboyant pirate, Black Stache terrorizes the seven seas in search of a worthy
adversary. Heartless and snobby, he is partial to the poetical and theatrical; and also not terribly
bright. Actor must have great comedic timing and not afraid to act in a big, broad, and sometimes over the-top style.
A young girl and Starcatcher apprentice, Molly is taken aboard the ship 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.
A lonely and hardened orphan who doesn’t miss much, Peter is 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. Looking for an actor who can be genuinely earnest and sweet, while
The schoolmaster of St. Norbert’s Orphanage for Lost Boys, Grempkin is mean and malodorous; he
revels in keeping his boys in the dark and malnourished.
Molly’s nanny, a stereotypical British cad; outfitted with the duty of teaching Molly about womanhood.
She still has enough charm in her age to attract a sailor or two.
The vicious orphaned captain of the good ship, Neverland. Does not possess the capacity to lead
anyone but himself. Slank is greedy enough to send boys to their doom for the chance of gaining
Black Stache’s first mate. He is single-mindedly dedicated to his captain’s every whim.
An orphan, Prentiss is ambitious, hyper articulate, and logical. He yearns to be leader, even when he
knows in his heart that he’ll never be one. He can also be a bit of a blowhard with a touch of cowardice.
A seafarer; an old sea dog who is proud of his tenure. His kind heart gives him an appeal to the feminine
sensibility. The ladies like him.
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.
An orphan obsessed with food. A natural performer, Ted has an easy wit and is quite poetic with
