This Tony Award-winning show 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). From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, this wildly theatrical adaptation playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.
Character Breakdown / Project Needs
BLACK STACHE Age 30 to 50
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 Age 13 to 25
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 Age 13 to 25
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 Age 40 to 60
The schoolmaster of St. Norbert’s Orphanage for Lost Boys. Mean and malodorous, he revels in keeping his boys in the dark and malnourished.
MRS. BUMBRAKE Age 40 to 60
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..
BILL SLANK Age 35 to 55
The vicious orphaned captain of the Neverland. Does not possess the capacity to lead anyone but himself, which puts him constantly in disaster. Greedy enough to send boys to their doom for the chance of gaining starstuff.
SMEE Age 25 to 55
Black Stache’s first mate. He is single-mindedly dedicated to his captain's every whim.
PRENTISS Age 13 to 25
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 Age 50 to 65
A seafarer, an old sea dog proud of his tenure. His kind heart gives him an appeal to the feminine sensibility.
LORD LEONARD ASTER Age 40 to 60
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 Age 35 to 45
Lord Aster’s old school friend, the captain of the Wasp, Britain’s fastest frigate. Lives with nautical bravura and heroic patriotism.
TED Age 13 to 25
An orphan obsessed with food. A natural performer with easy wit and quite poetic language.
Sailors; Seamen; Seafarers; Orphans; Pirates; Mermaids; Mollusks; Narrators
