CHARACTER BREAKDOWN:

 

Black Stache

 

A notorious pirate, terrorizing the seven seas in search of a worthy adversary. Heartless, hirsute, and suspiciously well read. Partial to the poetical and theatrical, which causes him to behave quite flamboyantly.

Gender: Male

 

Molly Aster

A young girl and Starcatcher apprentice who is taken aboard the Neverland as precious cargo. Curious and intelligent, she is only beginning to understand the confusing romantic longings that come with her age. She will risk anything for the sake of what is right.

Gender: Female

 

Boy/Peter

A lonely and hardened orphan who doesn't miss much. Nameless, homeless, and friendless at the beginning of the play and a hero by the end. He wants a home and a family more than anything, and dreams of a life of being free.

Gender: Male

 

Grempkin

The schoolmaster of St. Norbert's Orphanage for Lost Boys. Mean and malodorous, he revels in keeping his boys in the dark and malnourished. Optional Doublings include: FIGHTING PRAWN; MACK; SÁNCHEZ.

Gender: Male

 

Mrs. Bumbrake

Molly's nanny, a stereotypical British cad and outfitted with the duty of teaching Molly about womanhood. She still has enough charm in her age to attract a sailor or two. Optional Doubling as TEACHER.

Gender: Male

 

Bill Slank

The vicious orphaned captain of the Neverland. Does not possess the capacity to lead anyone but himself, which puts himself constantly in disaster. Greedy enough to send boys to their doom for the chance of gaining starstuff. Optional Doubling as HAWKING CLAM.

Gender: Male

 

Smee

Black Stache's first mate. He is single-mindedly dedicated to his captain's every whim.

Gender: Male

 

Prentiss

An orphan, ambitious, hyper articulate, and logical. He yearns to be leader, even when he knows in his heart that he'll never be one. A bit of a blowhard with a touch of cowardice.

Gender: Male

 

Alf

A seafarer, an old sea dog proud of his tenure. His kind heart gives him an appeal to the feminine sensibility.

Gender: Male

 

Lord Leonard Aster

Molly's father, a loyal subject to the Queen. The very model of a Victorian English gentleman, he is a faithful friend and a secret Starcatcher.

Gender: Male

 

Captain Robert Falcon Scott

Lord Aster's old school friend, the captain of the Wasp, Britain's fastest frigate. Lives with nautical bravura and heroic patriotism.

Gender: Male

 

Ted

An orphan obsessed with food. A natural performer with easy wit and quite poetic language.

Gender: Male
