Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie’s enchanting play, Disney’s PETER PAN JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn’t grow up. The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs, such as “Following the Leader,” “You Can Fly,” “The Second Star to the Right” and “Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me.” Wendy Darling loves to tell stories to her brothers, Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!
Characters (In Alphabetical Order)
CAPTAIN HOOK: The dangerous villain who seeks revenge on Peter Pan for the loss of his hand.
CHIEF TIGER BAMBOO: The leader of the native population on Never Land.
JOHN: The middle Darling child who acts quite mature for his age. He is a smart, analytical thinker.
MICHAEL: The youngest Darling child and baby brother to Wendy and John. He is sensitive and playful.
MR. DARLING: The Darling children’s father. He is a moody, pompous man who has an extremely caring heart underneath.
MRS. DARLING: The mother of Wendy, John and Michael. She is wise and sensible; the calming opposite to Mr. Darling’s fussing.
NANA: a canine nursemaid to the Darling children. She cannot speak but takes very good care of Wendy, John and Michael.
PETER PAN: The boy who wouldn’t grow up. He is a hotheaded, adventurous adolescent who is also very caring.
SMEE: Captain Hook’s right-hand man and the show’s comic relief. The role of Smee is another opportunity to showcase a comedic performer alongside Captain Hook.
THE CROCODILE: Ate Captain Hook’s hand and is now following him to eat the rest. This is a non-speaking role, and the actor playing this character can become part of the ensemble for other group numbers.
THE FAIRIES: Tinker Bell’s friends whom she has roped into telling the story. 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 up with being in someone else’s story.
THE INDIANS: The native inhabitants of Never Land. They include Brave Pine, Brave Oak and Brave Shrub. You may expand the size of your ensemble by creating additional indian roles as needed.
THE LOST BOYS: Peter Pan’s faithful gang. They are fellow orphans and incredibly loyal to their leader. The Lost Boys include Cubby, Skunk, Foxy, Hop and the Raccoon Twins.
THE MERMAIDS: also native to Never Land and live in Mermaid Lagoon. They very friendly to Peter but resentful of Wendy when she arrives. The mermaids include Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Atina, Adella and Allana.
THE PIRATES: Captain Hook’s rough gang of henchmen. They are mean and gruff characters that do Captain Hook’s bidding. They include Jukes, Flint, Cookson, Murphy, Noodler and Skylights. You may expand the size of your ensemble by creating additional pirates as needed.
TIGER LILY: The indian Chief’s daughter. She is a strong and proud young woman, so look for a performer who is a confident and comfortable on stage.
TINKER BELL: 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.
WENDY: The eldest Darling child and a gifted storyteller.
Range: A3-D#5 -
