IVT Announces “Peter Pan Jr.” Auditions

Indian Valley Theatre announces auditions for its upcoming children’s musical, “Peter Pan, Jr.”

Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale and featuring an unforgettable score by Morris “Moose” Charlap and Jule Styne with lyrics by Carolyn Leigh and Betty Comden and Adolph Green, “Peter Pan” is one of the most beloved and frequently performed family favorites of all time. This high-flying Tony Award-winning musical has been performed around the world and delighted audiences for 60 years and is now adapted for young performers.

Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.

Featuring the iconic songs, “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up” and “Never Never Land,” and a rousing book full of magic, warmth and adventure, “Peter Pan Jr.” is the perfect show for the child in all of us… a timeless classic musical that whisks you away to a place where dreams are born and no one ever grows up!

Auditions for “Peter Pan, Jr.” are open to children 7-18 years old only and will be held at the Historic Sandwich Opera House on Friday, October 6th (5:30pm-8:30pm) and Sunday, October 8th (9:00 am until 2:00pm). Come prepared to sing a short song a cappella and cold read from the script.
