Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old
story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who
Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical
adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels,
the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and
Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne
Barker. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling
comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher
playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the
bonds of friendship, duty and love.

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

Featuring a dozen actors portraying more than 100 unforgettable
characters, Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and
the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.
It can be expanded or pared down technically to fit the specific needs
and abilities of any theatre company.

Casting:  Although the cast list is mostly male we will use gender
neutral casting for the show!

Cast Size: Flexible
Cast Type: Ensemble Cast
Dance Requirements: None

Character Breakdown

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

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.
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.
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;
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.
Black Stache's first mate. He is single-mindedly dedicated to his captain's
every whim.
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.
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.
An orphan obsessed with food. A natural performer with easy wit and
quite poetic language.

Congratulations to the Cast and Crew of Little Shop of Horrors!  Bravo!

We are often asked by students and parents how a student actor can improve. 
Below is a list of ideas.

1.       Attend shows!

You do not need to travel to New York to see a good show.  There are many
opportunities to 
see shows right here in the Lakes Region.  Watch the paper for
shows at other middle and high schools.  There are several community theaters
in the area:  The Winnipesaukee Players,  Streetcar Company, The Village
Players and The Little Church Theater. 

If you expand the region from Plymouth to Concord, you could see a show every weekend.  

Can’t afford to attend live theater?  You can find many shows on YouTube.

2.       Audition, A LOT!

Every audition is a chance to hone your skills.  Even if you do not get a role
you will learn by seeing what different directors and music directors look for
when you audition for them.

3.       Do more than just school shows!

You wouldn’t expect to become a concert pianist, NFL quarterback, or bestselling
author without lots of practice.  You can’t improve your stage skills in just two
shows a year.  The community theaters listed above often have shows that are
open to students.  The Winnipesaukee Playhouse has a program for children and
a program for teens.  They also have a summer internship program for teens as
does the Interlakes Summer Theater.  Check out their websites for more

4.       Take voice lessons!

Raw skill is great but we all know it takes training and practice to develop talent. 
A voice teacher can help you improve your range, teach you proper techniques,
recommend songs for auditions and help you learn to deliver a song well.

Can’t afford voice lessons?  Join a choir.  You can learn a lot about proper
breathing, harmony, and technique by singing with a choir.

Just remember, singing pop, country or rock music is different from singing
for musical theater.

5.       Take dance lessons

Raw skill is great but we all know it takes training and practice to develop talent. 
A dance teacher will teach you proper technique, improve your rhythm and balance.

Can’t afford dance lessons?  You can find plenty of dance lessons online. 

Just remember, hip-hop, modern, and ballet are different from dancing
for musical theater.

Basically, the answer to this question is
