The Sonoma Arts Live Teens ’N Training program will be holding auditions for PETER & THE STARCATCHER, directed by TNT Education Director Libby Oberlin, on Saturday, December 16, from 1:00 to 3:00pm at The Theater School, 19485 Highway 12 (2nd floor) in Sonoma. Rehearsals start January 10, 2018 and performances are March 8, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18 on the Rotary Stage in Andrews Hall at The Sonoma Community Center.
Male and female auditioners age 13-19 of all abilities and experience will be asked to read from scripts that will be provided. PETER & THE STARCATCHER is not a musical but does include some songs so auditioners for certain roles may also be asked to sing a short selection from a pop or rock song.
A Tony-winner for Best Play, PETER & THE STARCATCHER is written by Rick Elice, adapting Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson’s bestselling novel- a prequel “introducing” J.M. Barrie’s classic characters Peter Pan, Hook, Mrs. Darling and others.
Director Libby Oberlin says: “PETER & THE STARCATCHER offers actors the opportunity to play bold characters in the most ensemble driven play we’ve explored yet with TNT. This hilarious show uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to bring the story to life.”
Callbacks will be Monday, December 18 from 6:30 to 8:30pm. SVHS drama students participating in class showcases are encouraged to attend either the audition or call back. Please coordinate with our Stage Manager at the e-mail address below.
