The Bayswater Players audition for Peter Pan on Feb 21 from 3-6pm & Feb 22 from 7-10pm. Call Backs are Feb 28 from 3-6pm. Be prepared to dance. Prepare 16 bar musical piece to sing. Contact Michael for more info at 7182089687. Visit us on the web at thebayswaterplayers.org and "like" us on Facebook facebook.com/thebayswaterplayers. All roles open.
Peter Pan: Age 16-25 Vocal range: Tenor/Alto Eb2 - C4 the clever, adventurous, and confident leader of the Lost Boys. While at times he is boastful and self-centered, there is a side of Peter that is caring and joyous. His desire to stay a child forever allows him to continue his adventures unburdened by the realities of growing up. He is the embodiment of youthful naïveté. His relationship with Wendy, however, forces him to grapple with emotions he never anticipated. The actor playing this role must be able to convey the complexity of the character and command the stage. The show rests on Peter’s shoulders, and the actor must be able to handle the demands and pressure of such a role. The actor must be an excellent singer, an agile mover, and unafraid of flying.
Wendy Darling: Age 16-25 Vocal range: Soprano A3 - D5 On the verge of adolescence, Wendy is conflicted by her desire to grow up and her fears about the unknown aspects of adulthood. She is a very pleasant and charming girl who takes on the role of “mother” to the Lost Boys. Meeting Peter awakens romantic feelings within her and she is forced to reconcile the various facets of her emerging womanhood. Wendy must be a strong singer and actress who is not afraid of flying.
John Napoleon Darling: Age: 11-14 Vocal range: Tenor A2 - D4 the loyal, bookish middle child of the Darling family. He has always dreamed of being in a big adventure. Must be a good mover and be comfortable flying.
Michael Darling: Age: 6-9 Vocal range: Tenor A2 - D4 The youngest Darling child. He is a sweet, bubbly, and likeable boy who is full of fun. Must be a good mover and be comfortable flying. Vocal Range: Tenor
Mrs. Darling: Age: 25 to 45 Vocal range: Soprano D4 - C5 graceful, warm, and motherly – exactly what one would presume Wendy’s mother to be. Mrs. Darling is a featured role with solo singing. The actor must have a maternal presence and a beautiful singing voice. Mrs. Darling may be doubled as a Neverland animal and/or an Indian.
Mr. Darling: Age: 30 to 50 Vocal range: C3 - E4 A stern and unimaginative but loving father. This role is a wonderful opportunity for a featured acting role with no singing ability required. This role may be doubled as a pirate.
Captain Hook: Age: 30 to 50
Vocal: Baritone C#3 - F#4 Outwardly, Hook is a classic villain. However, underneath this delightfully evil exterior lies a weak, washed up coward who hides behind an unemotional and controlling façade. Hook is Peter’s nemesis and detests Peter’s confidence and natural charisma. The actor playing Hook must be a strong singer and character actor. Additionally, he must be fit and have the ability to master stage combat. Vocal Range: Baritone
Smee: Age: 28 to 48 Vocal range: Baritone/Tenor D3 - F#4 Captain Hook’s right hand man. He is a jovial, simple, and loveable sidekick. He is a comedic character in direct contrast to Hook in appearance and physical stature. Must be able to move.
Tiger Lily: Age: 14 to 24 Vocal range: Mezzo Ab3 - C5 must be able to dance - The beautiful princess of the Indian tribe. Tiger Lily is brave, “coquettish, cold, and amorous by turns.” She must possess a sensuality that stands in contrast to Wendy’s sweet demeanor. Strong dance ability required.
Ensemble: Indians, Pirates Adult Ensemble, The Lost Boys; Children's Ensemble

THE STORY: A sinister con man, Harry Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll, which they are much interested in, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border, not knowing that sewn inside were several grams of heroin. When the woman is murdered the situation becomes more urgent. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman's murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. She refuses to reveal its location, and with the help of a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules, so when darkness falls she turns off all the lights leaving both of them to maneuver in the dark until the game ends.
