PETER PAN  -   Male/Female,  Stage Age 13-18
Peter is 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.
Vocal Range:  Tenor/Alto

WENDY  -  Female, Stage Age 12-18
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.
Vocal Range:  Soprano

CAPTAIN HOOK  -  Male, Stage Age 40s-50s
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

MRS. DARLING  -  Female, Stage Age 30s-40s
Mrs. Darling is 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. 
Vocal Range:  Soprano

MR. DARLING  -  Male, Stage Age 40s-50s
Mr. Darling is 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.
Vocal Range:  N/A

JOHN DARLING  -  Male, Stage Age 10-12
John is 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.
Vocal Range:  Tenor

MICHAEL DARLING  -  Male, Stage Age 6-8
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

TIGER LILY  -  Female, Stage Age 13-18
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.
Vocal Range:  Mezzo

SMEE  -  Male, Stage Age 50s-60s
Smee is 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.
Vocal Range:  Baritone/Tenor

LIZA  -  Female, Stage Age 30s-40s
Liza is the pleasant Darling family maid.  She travels to Neverland, and represents the ability to grow up and still maintain a youthful spirit.  The actor playing Liza must be a strong dancer and unafraid of flying.
Vocal Range:  Any
NANA – CROCODILE  -  Male/Female,  Stage Age N/A
These non-speaking roles could possibly be played by the same actor, who must be agile and able to express animal emotions with his or her body. These are both very physical roles.
Vocal Range:  N/A

LOST BOYS -  Male, Stage Age 5-15
The adventurous gang of misfit boys who have been abandoned by or have run away from their mothers.  They live with Peter in Neverland and originally share his desire to never grow up.  They are a group of distinct and unique personalities, including Tootles (the sweet one), Slightly Soiled (the conceited one), and Nibs (the cheerful one).  These strong personalities demand strong actors who are able to move and have stage presence and energy.  All Lost Boys are male.  If a girl wants to audition for a lost boy she must look and act like a boy. 
Vocal Range:  All

PIRATES  -  Male, Stage Age 20s-50s -  Perhaps some Pirate wenches will be cast
A group of Captain Hook’s henchmen.  These men believe they are sinister and cunning, but are actually a comical band of buffoons.  They are continuously out-smarted and out-maneuvered by the Lost Boys and resort to dance to spark their creative juices.  The actors playing these roles must be good singers and able to move, but more importantly need to possess strong comedic timing.  Stage combat experience is a plus.
Vocal Range:  All

INDIANS  -  Male/Female,  Stage Age  20s-40s
The Indians are the featured dancers of the show.  They must be very strong and agile dancers who can convey character and emotion through movement.  Gymnastic ability is a plus.  Some actors playing Indians may double as the Neverland animals, providing a unique featured dancing opportunity.  The Staff is looking to cast up to four male Indians who are strong, athletic dancers and must be comfortable appearing onstage without a shirt.
Vocal Range:  All

NEVERLAND ANIMALS  -  Male/Female,  Stage Age 20s-40s
The animals include an Ostrich (who should be able to dance en pointe), a Kangaroo, a Lion and several Mermaids.  The Neverland Animals must be strong dancers who are agile and able to express animal emotions with their bodies.
Vocal Range:  All
