Peter Pan-the boy who wouldn’t grow up. He is a hotheaded, adventurous adolescent who is also very caring. Peter needs to be a strong leader, and will be cast as a boy in this role. Peter has a few solos and must have excellent stage presence.
Vocal Range: A to High C
Tinker Bell-Peter Pan’s fairy. She is fullsize and able to speak English when talking to the audience, but two inches tall and only able to speak through bells while in scenes. She must be a true “triple threat” performer who can sing several solos, dance very well, and act with confidence.
Vocal Range: Low G# to High C
The Fairies-Tinker Bell’s friends whom she has roped into telling the story. These performers must be comfortable singing harmony and dancing. Silvermist is sweet and supportive. Rosetta has southern charm. Fawn is spunky and fun. Iridessa is the most cautious and sensible. Lyria is delicate and inquisitive. Vidia can’t believe she has to put up with being in someone else’s story.
Wendy-the eldest Darling child and a gifted storyteller. She needs to be a mature performer who isn’t afraid of showing emotion. Wendy has several vocal solos and needs to be a strong singer.
Vocal Range: A to High D
John-the middle Darling child who acts quite mature for his age. He is a smart, analytical thinker. John must show sophistication while being a child at heart. Most of John’s singing is done in a group.
Vocal Range: A to High D
Michael-the youngest Darling child and baby brother to Wendy and John. He is sensitive and playful. This role will be cast by a younger actor who can keep up with the older children. Most of Michael’s singing is done in a group.
Vocal Range: A to High D
Mr. Darling– is the Darling children’s father. He is a moody, pompous man who has an extremely caring heart underneath.
Mrs. Darling-is the mother of Wendy, John, and Michael. She is wise and sensible, the calming opposite of Mr. Darling’s fussing. We’ll cast a performer who is capable of portraying a motherly command over her children and her husband.
Mrs. Nana-is a canine nursemaid to the Darling children. She cannot speak but takes very good care of Wendy, John, and Michael.
Captain Hook-is the dangerous villain who seeks revenge on Peter Pan for the loss of his hand. This role is a chance to showcase a very strong character actor. He should have good comedic timing, a clear speaking voice, and a big personality. While the role includes several solos, they can be spoken rather than sung.
Vocal Range: B to High E flat
Smee-Captain Hook’s righthand man and the show’s comic relief. The role of Smee is another opportunity to showcase a comedic performer alongside Captain Hook. This role requires only group singing.
The Pirates-Captain Hook’s round gang of henchmen. They are mean and gruff characters that do Captain Hook’s bidding. They include Jukes, Flint, Cookson, Murphy, Noodler, and Skylights. Group singing is required.
The Crocodile-ate Captain Hook’s hand and is now following him to eat the rest. This is a nonspeaking role.
The Lost Boys-Peter Pan’s faithful gang. They are fellow orphans and incredibly loyal to their leader. The Lost Boys include Cubby, Skunk, Foxy, Hop, and Raccoon twins. All Lost Boys will be boys and must be good dancers.
Chief Tiger Bamboo-leader of the native population on Never Land. Only group singing is required for this role, so a commanding presence is most important.
Tiger Lily-Indian Chief’s daughter. She is a strong and proud young woman, so we’ll cast someone who is confident and comfortable on stage. This is a role for a strong singer and dancer.
Vocal Range: A flat to High C #
Indians-native inhabitants of Never Land. They include Brave Pine, Brave Oak, and Brave Shrub.
Mermaids-also native to Never Land and live in Mermaid Lagoon. They are very friendly to Peter but resentful to Wendy when she arrives.
