Neverland

Book, Music and Lyrics by Julian Butler

Director: Noah Putterman

Music Director: James McQuillen

Rehearsals: Begin on/around January 20, 2018

Performances:  January 30 – February 18, 2018.

Audition Requirements: Please prepare 16-32 bars of a contemporary Musical theatre song (uptempo or ballad) appropriate for the character you are auditioning for.

Show synopsis: 13-yearold Wendy goes to visit her dad, Mr. Darling, at his flat in south London. With her parents recently separated and on the cusp of adulthood, Wendy has trouble seeing the magic in the world until she meets a young boy named Peter. Wendy’s shabby bedroom is transformed into the Neverland of their dreams, as Peter and Wendy reimagine and act out the story of JM Barrie’s Peter and Wendy.

Character Breakdown

Wendy: (Teens-20s, to play 13) No longer a little girl, Wendy is still looking to find herself a great adventure. At times cynical of Peter’s magical qualities, she is also innocent and naïve about some of the harsher realities of the real world.

Peter: (Teens-20s, to play 10-12 years-old) Peter is an imaginative, mischievous young boy who lives in a children’s home in south London. He sees magic in the world where others don’t, and truly fancies himself the real-life Peter Pan.

Mr. Darling/ Captain Hook/ Garage Attendant: (30s-40s) Mr. Darling works at the children’s care home and lives in a rather rough part of south London. He is a loving father trying to maintain his relationship with his daughter, Wendy, now that he is separated from her mother. He takes on the role of the evil Captain Hook in Peter and Wendy’s imagination. This Hook is sometimes silly, but also has a darker side. This actor also briefly plays a Garage Attendant.

Character Breakdown

Marty: Marty is a zebra with a sweet disposition and dreams of exploring beyond the confines of the Central Park Zoo and into the wild.

Alex: Alex, the lion, is the main attraction at the Central Park Zoo and undoubtedly “The King of New York City.” He’s a fun-loving fella whose devotion to steak is matched only by his devotion to his friends.

Gloria: Gloria, the hippopotamus, is a bold young woman with a maternal streak that shines when she’s with her three closest friends: Alex, Marty and Melman.

Melman: Melman is a kind-hearted giraffe who is a bit of a hypochondriac. He’s always just a little bit nervous, but when it comes down to it, he’ll rise to the occasion.

King Julien / Zeke / Police Officer / Ship’s Captain / Foosa: King Julien is the outrageous king of the Lemurs, a wild band of creatures native to Madagascar trying desperately to avoid being eaten by the cat-like creatures called the Foosa.

Skipper serves as the captain of the group, giving orders with ease and command. The Lemurs are a wild band of creatures native to Madagascar trying desperately to avoid being eaten by the cat-like creatures called the Foosa. Servers are imagined servers in Alex’s dream when he starts to desire meat desperately!

Private’s primary job in the group is to maintain the cute and fuzzy disguise. Mort is the littlest of the Lemurs, a wild band of creatures native to Madagascar trying desperately to avoid being eaten by the cat-like creatures called the Foosa. Servers are imagined servers in Alex’s dream when he starts to desire meat desperately!

Rico (Penguin) / Candy / Lynn Lemur / Server #3: The Penguins are a group of birds on a mission: bust out of the zoo and return home to Antarctica. Rico is the brute of the group and can karate chop anything in sight. Candy Hammernose is a local TV action-news reporter. The Lemurs are a wild band of creatures native to Madagascar trying desperately to avoid being eaten by the cat-like creatures called the Foosa. Servers are imagined servers in Alex’s dream when he starts to desire meat desperately!

Maurice / Zelda / Mason / Old Lady / Animal Control / Foosa: Maurice is a lemur and King Julien’s assistant, who is not so welcoming to the Zoo animals. Zelda is one of the zookeepers introduce the crowds to all the sights and attractions of the Central Park Zoo. Mason is a chimpanzee with a bone to pick: though highly intelligent, his species seems to get a bad reputation for being simpleminded, and he takes that quite personally.
