Overview/Synopsis:

Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the

nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost

Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!

Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie's enchanting play, Disney's Peter Pan JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a

boy who wouldn't grow up with no flying required! The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs, such as

"Following the Leader," "You Can Fly," "The Second Star to the Right" and "Yo Ho, A Pirate's Life for Me." 

 

Cast of Characters:

 

PETER PAN is the boy who would never grow up. He is a hotheaded, adventurous adolescent who is also very caring. Cast an

actor who can be commanding and but also had the ability to capture tender moments. A boy or a girl can play the role. Peter

Pan has a few solos, but a strong character actor can easily act through them. Vocal Range: A2 – C#4

 

TINKER BELL is Peter Pan’s fairy. She is full-size and able to speak English when talking to the audience, but is two inches tall and only

able to speak through bells when in scenes. Cast a confident singer and actor, as Tinker Bell is the narrator and has several solos.

This role could be an opportunity to showcase a dancer, if you have a triple threat in the bunch! Vocal Range: G#3 – C#5

 

THE FAIRIES are Tinker Bell’s friends and have been roped into telling the story with her. Silvermist is sweet and supportive. Rosetta

has southern charm. Fawn is spunky and fun. Iridessa is the most cautious and sensible. And Vidia can’t believe she has to put up

with being in someone else’s story. The performers should be able to bring an individual personality to their character and be

confortable with group singing. The Fairies are an opportunity to showcase dancers, if you have talent in the group. Vocal Range:

G#3 – Eb 5

 

WENDY is the eldest Darling child, a gifted storyteller with a maternal sensibility. Look for a mature performer who isn’t afraid of

showing emotion. Wendy sings several solos that are fairly high, so cast a performer is who a confident singer with a decent

singing range. Vocal Range: A3 – D#5

 

JOHN is the middle Darling child who acts quite mature for his age. He is a smart, analytic thinker who is a natural leader. Look for

an actor who is capable of this sophistication while still being a kid at heart. While some solos are required, most singing is done in

groups. Vocal Range: A3 – D5

 

MICHAEL is the youngest Darling child, baby brother to Wendy and John. He is sensitive and playful. This role is an opportunity to

showcase one of your younger actors who can keep up with the older kids in the cast. The roll contains a few short solos, but

requires mostly group singing. Vocal Range: A3 – D5

 

MR. DARLING is the Darling children’s father. He is a moody, pompous man who actually has an extremely caring heart underneath

it all. Depending on the size of your cast, the actor playing Mr. Darling can also play the role of Captain Hook. Cast a versatile

performer who isn’t afraid of physical comedy, crazy voices and being over-the-top, especially if double cast as Captain Hook.

 

MRS. DARLING is the Wendy, John and Michael’s mother. She is wise and maternal, the calming opposite to Mr. Darling’s fussing.

Cast a performer who is capable of portraying a motherly command over her children and her husband. Depending on the size of

your cast, the actor playing Mrs. Darling can also play the role of Tiger Lily.

 

NANA is the Darling children’s nursemaid and a dog. She cannot speak, but takes very good care of the Wendy, John and

Michael. Cast a performer who isn’t afraid of being physical. The role of Nana can be played by a boy or a girl, and often also

plays the role of Smee.

 

CAPTAIN HOOK is a dangerous villain who seeks revenge on Peter Pan for the loss of his hand. He is pompous, gaudy and without

a conscience. This role is a chance to showcase one of your stronger character actors. The performer should have good comedic

timing and a big personality. While the role includes several solos, a strong character actor can easily act through them. When

possible, the role of Captain Hook should be played by the actor playing Mr. Darling. Vocal Range: B2 – Eb4

 

SMEE is Captain Hook’s right-hand man, and the show’s comic relief. The role of Smee is another opportunity to showcase a

comedic performer alongside Captain Hook. The role requires only group singing. The role can be played by a boy or a girl, and is

often played by the actor playing Nana.

 

THE PIRATES are Captain Hook’s roughhouse gang of henchmen. They are mean and gruff characters that do Captain Hook’s

bidding. They include Jukes, Starkey, Noodler, Skylights, Cookson and Murphy. You may expand the size of your ensemble by

creating additional pirates as needed. Only group singing is required, and boys and girls may play pirates. Vocal Range: C4 – Eb5

 

THE CROCODILE ate Captain Hook’s hand, and is now following him to eat the rest of him. This is a non-speaking role, and the actor

playing this character can become part of the ensemble for other group numbers.

 

THE LOST BOYS are Peter Pan’s right hand boys. They are fellow orphans like Peter Pan, and together form his gang of faithful friends

in Never Land. They include Cubby, Skunk, Foxy, Hop and the Raccoon Twins. Vocal Range: Bb3 – D5

 

CHIEF TIGER BAMBOO is the leader of the native Indian population on Never Land. Only group singing is required for this role, so

character work is most important for this role.

 

TIGER LILY is the Indian Chief’s daughter. She is a strong and proud young woman, so look for a performer who is a confident and

assured on stage. This role is an opportunity to showcase a dancer. This role is often played by the same actor playing Mrs. Darling.

Vocal Range: Ab3 – C#5

 

THE INDIANS are the native inhabitants in Never Land. They include Brave Pine, Brave Oak and Brave Shrub. You may expand the

size of your ensemble by creating additional Indian roles as needed. The Indian ensemble is an opportunity to showcase your best

dancers during “What Makes The Brave Man Brave.” Vocal Range: B3 – D5

 

THE MERMAIDS are also native to Never Land and live in Mermaid Lagoon. They very friendly to Peter, but resentful of Wendy

when she arrives in Never Land. The mermaids include Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Atina, Allana and Adella. These roles require group

singing only, and offer the opportunity to showcase dancers. Vocal Range: C4 – D5
