Auditions for Peter and the Starcatcher

Wednesday, September 5, 2018


Auditions are being scheduled for Shoreline Community College's production of Peter and the Starcatcher. Community members are welcome - if you are cast you will be asked to register for a performing arts class.

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER AUDITION INFORMATION

Peter and the Starcatcher provides a humorous and fantastical back story for the beloved character of Peter Pan and his arch-nemesis Captain Hook. In this wickedly imaginative play, we meet a poor orphaned child on the high seas simply called Boy because, in the absence of a mother and a father, he was never given a name.

His sad and lonely world is turned upside down when he meets Molly. The daughter of famous Starcatcher, Lord Astor, our heroine is on a mission to save the world and protect a treasure trunk filled with magical star stuff from getting into the hands of evil and greedy pirate Black Stache. As they travel aboard the Neverland ship headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love, friendship and forge an unbreakable bond.
