Home Made TheaterHome Made Theater announces open auditions for their October production of Peter and the Starcatcher, written by Rick Elice, music by Wayne Barker,
based on the novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, directed by Bob
Berenis. Auditions will be held on Monday, May 1st and Tuesday, May 2nd from
6:30-8:30 P.M. at the Spa Little Theater in Saratoga Spa State Park.
Attendance only required at one audition evening. The cast consists of adult
actors, ages 18 and older, with two roles available for actors 16 and older.

Tony winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century old story of how
an orphan boy becomes Peter Pan. This is an amazingly creative theatrical
adaptation of Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s best-selling novels.  It’s a
play with music, not a musical. Although there is no dance in the show, it’s
very physical and some cast members should be prepared for extensive
movement and the ability to lift certain cast members. Unlike the original
production which had one female, a number of these roles can be cast as
gender-neutral.

When a young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to
a distant island ruled by an evil king, they are unaware of a mysterious
trunk filled with an otherworldly precious cargo. At sea, the boys are
discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a
Starcatcher-in-training, who realizes that the trunk’s cargo is starstuff, a
celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong
hands. However, the fearsome pirate Black Stache is determined to claim the
trunk and its treasure for his own, and thus the journey becomes a thrilling
adventure.

Those auditioning should prepare a 16-bar excerpt from an appropriate song
and bring their own sheet music, as an accompanist will be provided. No a
capella singing. Please bring a current photo and resume. Photos cannot be
returned.

Production dates are weekends, October 14-29, 2017. Rehearsals will begin on
August 28th with a full schedule beginning September 5th. Rehearsals will be
Monday through Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoon or evenings. Some
additional July/August dates may be scheduled according to availability. No
appointments are necessary for the audition. For a detailed flyer with
