The Wellington School
What is the back story of Peter Pan? What about Captain Hook? Tinkerbell? This play is the prequel to Peter Pan based on the book by Dave Berry and Ridley Pearson. Complete with mermaids, pirates, lost boys and swashbuckling fun!
Peter and the Starcatcher is an ensemble play with music. Most actors will play multiple roles - with the exception of Boy and Molly. All roles require ensemble singing; however, only a few roles require solo singing.
• KNOW THE STORY & WHAT’S HAPPENING. You must be able to explain what’s going on with the character in your monologue - who your character is and how he/she fits into the story.
• MEMORIZE. I can always tell the difference between messing up on words or lines because you are nervous or made an honest mistake and messing up because you didn’t take the time to memorize the monologue.
• ACT. This means more than choosing an "emotion.” Actors who stand out will be those who play the objectives, tactics and ideas. Take the time to make discoveries and realizations in your character! Make physical choices. Use your face, voice & body as tools to convey all of the ideas and thoughts in your head.
• PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. I will expect you to practice and work hard in rehearsals, so this audition is a test of that ability. Practice by yourself and in front of others. Practice while walking to school...PRACTICE!
