Character Breakdown

Wendy Darling
The eldest Darling child. Wendy is compassionate, incredibly loving, and very protective of her younger brothers. She is the child every parent wishes they had.
John Napoleon Darling
The middle Darling child. A sly smile is always at home on John’s face. He has a mischievous twinkle in his eye and is always ready for an adventure.
Michael Darling
The youngest Darling child. Never far from his favorite Teddy, Michael is sweet and innocent. He is ever so lovable and very huggable.
Mrs. Darling
The Darling matriarch. Mrs. Darling glides about gently but swiftly from task to task with motherly precision. She has a pleasant strength to her demeanor.
Mr. Darling
A bit of grouch, Mr. Darling is a professional who happens to be a father. Though sparkles of his love peak through from time to time, he often has places to go and people to see. He may be of imposing size.
Peter Pan
Childhood and boyishness personified, Peter is athletic and not shy about taking to flight when the moment suits him. His reflexes are catlike and his presence exhilarating. A creature of constant motion.
Captain Hook
The one-handed captain of the Jolly-Roger. Relentless and restless in his pursuit of Pan, Hook is short-fused and ridiculous. He is a larger than life villain.
Smee
Captain Hook’s knockabout lackey. An archetypical evil side-kick, Smee might be a bit rotund and is definitely dwarfed by Hook. Should be portrayed by an actor with physical comedy chops.
Tiger Lily
A striking Native American princess, Tiger Lily is a tough girl and an excellent dancer. She should command the stage when taking it and move about it as would mist.
Ensemble
Indians; The Lost Boys; Pirates; Various Animals

AUDITION TIPS:

No experience is required to audition. Most of our students learn through participation.

Solo auditions only. No duet or group auditions.

You will be auditioning for the Audition Committee, generally about 4-5 people.

Come prepared if you want to be considered for a role.

Project so the judges can hear your beautiful voice. Do not sing uncontrollably (scream sing).

Strategize Your Music Selection. Avoid the trendy (what is currently popular) as many will sing those same songs. The goal is to stand out in the crowd. Broadway and Disney songs are preferred for auditions. Avoid Country and Pop songs.

You are responsible to bring your own Karaoke background track.

Enter with a smile and do your best. We’ve been on the audition side too. We are looking for potential, not perfection.

Make a good impression and show that you care about your craft. Dress nicely for your audition. Wear something distinctive so the Audition Committee will remember you.

Bring your performance resume and headshot. This is standard for auditions and a part of the educational process of theatre. Even if you are new to theatre, please gather your performing experience from school and church activities, along with piano/voice/dance lessons.

CASTING REALITIES:

Research the musical you are auditioning for. Read up on the musical on Wikipedia or watch the musical movie version. Get acquainted with the roles. Do any of the roles have any casting limitations (height, weight, age, male/female, ethnicity)? Do you realistically fit the roles that you would like?

Our Audition Committee reserves the right to not cast students/families that have had trouble completing their previous commitment to an IRYT production. This includes consistent tardiness and late arrivals, behavior problems, and students who quit a production in the midst of rehearsals.
