Current Audition Opportunities

CFCArts Theatre is currently auditioning for “Peter & The Starcatcher”

CFCArts Theatre presents “Peter and the Starcatcher” directed by Alexander LaPlante. 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). 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.

Please send a video submission of a 16-bar cut of your favorite song and a funny story from your life by September 5 at 11:59pm. Central Florida Community Arts Theatre is a community theatre and as such, all roles are unpaid. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or curiosities, please contact: theatre@cfcarts.com.

Character Descriptions

The gender identities listed are not exact and all genders are highly encouraged to audition for the roll that suits them best. Our hopes are for a diverse cast to tell this story of bravery and love!

  • Molly Aster – the hero of our story. 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.
    Gender: Female
    Age: 18 to 25
  • Boy/Peter – A lonely and hardened orphan who doesn’t miss much. Nameless, homeless, and friendless at the beginning of the play and a catalyst for change by the end. He wants a home and a family more than anything, and dreams of a life of being free.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 18 to 25
  • Prentiss – An orphan, ambitious, hyper articulate, and logical. He yearns to lead, even when he knows in his heart that he’ll never be one. A bit of a blowhard with a touch of cowardice.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 18 to 25
  • Ted – An orphan obsessed with food. A natural performer with easy wit and quite poetic language.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 18 to 25
  • Black Stache – The last of the notorious pirates, terrorizing the seven seas in search of a worthy adversary. Heartless, shrewd, and suspiciously well read. Partial to the poetical and theatrical, which causes him to have a flamboyant manner about him.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 30 to 50
  • Smee – Black Stache’s first mate. He is single-mindedly dedicated to his captain’s every whim. No sense of how smart he truly is.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 25 to 55
  • Lord 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.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 30 to 50
  • 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.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 35 to 45
  • Alf – A seafarer, an old sea dog proud of his tenure. Rough on the outside but kind hearted and sensitive on the inside in the same way a pineapple is prickly yet sweet.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 50 to 65
  • Ms. Bumbrake/teacher – 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. Also plays the wise mermaid Teacher.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 30 to 50
  • Bill Slank/hawking clam – 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. Also plays Hawking Clam, the neglected son of Fighting Prawn in act 2.
    Gender: Male or Female
    Age: 30 to 50
  • Grempkin/Mack/Sanchez/fighting prawn –
    The schoolmaster of St. Norbert’s Orphanage for Lost Boys. Mean and malodorous, he revels in keeping his boys in the dark and malnourished. Also doubles as the abused sailors Mack and Sanchez and the hurt leader of the Mollusk nation Fighting Prawn.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 35 to 55

Everyone also plays narrators, natives, seafarers, and pirates!
