SecondStory Repertory would like to invite actors ages 10-19
to audition for our upcoming summer workshop production of
Peter & The Starcatcher! Directed by Britt Boyd.
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

*Roles listed are representative. Exact casting will be
determined at callbacks. All roles will be cast with actors
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.
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.
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.
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
