Peter Pan

The boy who wouldn’t grow up. He is hotheaded, adventurous adolescent who is also very caring. This actor needs to be able to be commanding and a natural leader. Peter has a few solo singing lines, but his presence is most important.

Accompaniment (music only)
Sheet music and lyrics

Wendy

Wendy is the eldest Darling child and a gifted storyteller. We need a mature performer who isn’t afraid of showing a range of emotions. Wendy has several singing solos, so we need a confident singer.

Tinker Bell, Featured Fairy or Featured Mermaids

Tinker Bell (“Tink”) is Peter Pan’s fairy. She is full-size and able to speak English when talking to the audience, but two inches tall and only able to speak through bells while in scenes. This actor must be a confident singer and actor as Tinker Bell is the narrator and has several singing solo parts.
Featured Fairies are Tinker Bell’s friends.
Silvermist is sweet and supportive. Rosetta has southern charm. Fawn is spunky and fun. Iridessa is the most cautious and sensible. Lyria is delicate and inquisitive. And Vidia can’t believe she has to put with being in someone else’s story.
Featured Mermaids are native to Never Land live in Mermaid Lagoon. They are very friendly to Peter but resentful of Wendy when she arrives. The mermaids include Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Atina, Adella, and Allana.
Song: You Can Fly/Fly to Your Heart (part 2)  - All parts from m. 25 (about 0:35 in to song to the end) beginning with Tinker Bell’s solo “watch all flowers dance with the wind”, then Fairies part at m. 43, the ALL parts and Group 1 parts until the end
Accompaniment (music only)
Sheet music and lyrics

John and Michael

John is the middle Darling child who acts quite mature for his age. He is a smart, analytical thinker. We need an actor who is capable of portraying sophistication and still be a kid at heart. Most of John’s singing is done in groups.
Michael is the youngest Darling child and baby brother to Wendy and John.  He is sensitive and playful. While this role is of a young child, the actor has significant stage time and must be able to keep up with the mature roles of the cast and be able to maintain focus and character while on stage for extended periods.
Song: You Can Fly (Sing John AND Michael’s parts)
Accompaniment (music only)

Captain Hook

Captain Hook is the dangerous villain who seeks revenge on Peter Pan for the loss of his hand. This role needs to be played by a strong character actor with good comedic timing, a clear speaking voice, and a BIG personality.
