About the Show

The Pennington Players present the tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher – a show which 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). A wildly theatrical adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels, the play was conceived for the stage by directors, Roger Rees and Alex Timbers, and written by Rick Elice, with music by Wayne Barker. 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.

Character Information

Molly Aster (Female, Age 13-25) - A young girl and Starcatcher apprentice who is taken aboard the Neverland ship 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. A true hero in every sense of the word.

Boy/Peter (Male, Age 13-25) - 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.

Prentiss (Male, Age 13-25) - 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.

 

The rest of the roles in this production are open to actors of any gender. Ages are flexible except where specifically noted.

Several roles listed below will be doubled with other roles in the show.

 

Black Stache (Age 30-50) - 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.

Grempkin - The schoolmaster of St. Norbert's Orphanage for Lost Boys. Mean and malodorous, revels in keeping his boys in the dark and malnourished. 

Mrs. Bumbrake (Age 40-60) - Molly's nanny, a stereotypical British cad and outfitted with the duty of teaching Molly about womanhood. 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. Single-mindedly dedicated to his captain's every whim.

Alf (Age 50-65) - 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. Referred to as “Tubby,” due to food obsession rather than physical size

.

Rehearsal Information: 

You should expect two rehearsals in the evening during the week and one weekend day rehearsal per week. Later in rehearsal process, more days may be added. These rehearsals will be broken up by scenes. Call sheets will be made available to the cast on a weekly basis to tell you which rehearsals you will need to attend.

About the Show

This two-person show focuses on Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, who were both born to wealth and position. They are childhood friends whose lifelong correspondence begins with birthday party thank-you notes and summer camp postcards. Romantically attached, they continue to exchange letters through the boarding school and college years—where Andy goes on to excel at Yale and law school, while Melissa flunks out of a series of “good schools”. With Andy at war, Melissa marries, but her attachment to Andy remains strong and she continues to keep in touch as he marries, becomes a successful attorney, gets involved in politics and, eventually, is elected to the U.S. Senate. Meanwhile, her marriage in tatters, Melissa dabbles in art and gigolos, drinks more than she should, and becomes estranged from her children. Eventually she and Andy do become involved in a brief affair, but it is really too late for both of them. This thirty-year love letter reveals how much they really meant, and gave to, each other over the years—physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.

Character Information and Monologues

ANDREW MAKEPEACE III – (late 40s – mid 60s) WASP. Raised to believe that family always comes first. A bit stuffy, uptight, kind, safe conservative, somewhat naïve, but disciplined and loves letter writing.


ANDREW - O.K. Here goes. The reason I’ve been writing Angie Atkinson is because I just don’t think I can stop writing letters, particularly to girls. As I told you before, in some ways I feel most alive when I’m holed up in some corner, writing things down. I pick up a pen, and almost immediately everything seems to take shape around me. I love to write. I love writing my parents because then I become the ideal son. I love writing essays for English because then I am for a short while a true scholar. I love writing letters to the newspaper, notes to my friends, Christmas cards, anything where I have to put down words. I love writing you. You most of all. I always have. I feel like a true lover when I’m writing you. This letter, which I’m writing with my own hand, my own pen, in my own penmanship, comes from me and no one else, and is a present of myself to you. It’s not typewritten, though I’ve learned how to type. There’s no copy of it, though I suppose I could use a carbon. And it’s not a telephone call, which is dead as soon as it is over. No, this is just me, me the way I write, the way my writing is, the way I want to be to you, giving myself to you across a distance, not keeping or retaining any part of it for myself, giving this piece of myself to you totally, and you can tear me up and throw me out, or keep me, and read me today, tomorrow, anytime you want until you die.


MELISSA GARDNER – (late 40s – mid 60s) a wry free spirit, funny, a rebel, unfulfilled artist, liberal, needy, feels deeply, somewhat self-destructive. Spends her life looking for stability.


MELISSA - I don’t believe in going steady. It’s against my religion. I hated that stuff with all those pairs of pimply people in the Watson’s basement, leaning on each other, swaying to that dumb music with all the lights off. If that’s going steady, I say screw it. My mother says you should meet as many boys as you can before you have to settle down and marry one of them. That way you’ll make less of a mistake. It didn’t work for her but maybe it will work for me. I don’t know, Andy. I like seeing you, but I don’t want to go home much anymore. My mother gets drunk a lot, if you must know, and comes into my room all the time, and talks endlessly about I don’t know what because she slurs her words. The only really good time I had was when I came over to your house Christmas Eve. That was fun. Singing around the piano, hanging up the stockings, playing Chinese checkers with your brother, helping your mother with the gravy. I liked all that. You may not have as much money as we have, but you’ve got a better family. So spring vacation I’m going to visit my grandmother in Palm Beach. Ho hum. At least I’ll get a tan. P.S. Enclosed is a picture I drew of your dog Porgy who I remember from Christmas Eve. The nose is wrong, but don’t you think the eyes are good?

Rehearsal Information: 

Rehearsals will be scheduled based on the availability of the two people cast.
