Peter Pan
Peter Pan is a boy without a care in the world. This role is for an actor with a soaring can-do spirit who most certainly “won’t grow up!” This performer can do it all: act, sing, and be a physical as the part demands.

Gender: Both
Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: F3

Wendy
Wendy is the eldest of the Darling children and has a certain maternal quality. Wendy is very bright, ever-practical and ready for an adventure! This actress should be a young lady with warm presence and great singing voice.

Gender: Female
Vocal range top: Db5
Vocal range bottom: Ab3

John
John is the middle Darling child and has an amicable and open presence. A little more proper than his younger brother, look for a good actor and singer who is the perfect complement to his siblings.
Gender: Male Vocal range top: Db5
Vocal range bottom: Ab3

Michael
Michael is the youngest Darling boy and seems to have unlimited energy. Find a good actor who can easily portray the youngest and most stubborn of the Darling children. 
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: Db5
Vocal range bottom: Ab3

Nana
Nana is a dog, but we don’t need to find a real dog to fill the part! Nana is a young performer who is unafraid to jump in and play this iconic part of the story. This performer should have a knack for physicality and be comfortable making bold acting choices.
Gender: Both

Mrs. Darling
Mrs. Darling is the mother of Wendy, John and Michael, and she is the perfect picture of a mother. Cast a young lady who reads onstage as an older character and is experienced in acting and singing.
Gender: Female Vocal range top: Db5
Vocal range bottom: Ab3

Mr. Darling
Mr. Darling is the father of Wendy, John and Michael, and he is a man with one concern: keeping his house in order. Cast a young man with an older presence who is a perfect complement to Mrs. Darling. Gender: Male Liza Liza is the Darling’s housekeeper who always seems to be in a bit of a frenzy as she tries to keep everyone pleased. This is a great cameo role for a young woman who can make strong character choices. Gender: Female

Tiger Lily
Tiger Lily is the fearless leader of the Brave Girls. Cast a young lady who can command the stage and is a good actor, singer and mover.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: Db5
Vocal range bottom: Ab3

Brave Girls
The Brave Girls, including Brave Girl #1, Brave Girl #2 and Small Brave Girl, are a group of Neverland inhabitants. They are a fun bunch of girls who are as strong as they are kind. Cast a group of young ladies who are proficient movers as well as competent singers.
Gender: Female
Vocal range top: Db5
Vocal range bottom: Ab3

Lost Boys
The Lost Boys are a group of lads who live in Neverland without a care in the world! Cast advanced performers (and good singers) in the roles of Nibs, Slightly, Curley, Tootles, Twin #1 and Twin # 2. There is no need for the actors playing the Twins to be identical.
Gender: Male Vocal range top: C5
Vocal range bottom: Bb3

Pirates
The Pirates are a gaggle of villains who are looking to cause some trouble. Cast a group of young performers, male, female or both that can act, move well, and aren’t afraid to sing! Noodles, Cecco, and Starkey are all are great cameo roles for young performers to make strong acting choices.
Gender: Both

Captain Hook
Captain Hook, the leader of the Pirates, has a bone to pick… or rather a Peter Pan to hook! This is the perfect role for a young performer who can sing and act, but above all, has great comedic timing. Though Captain Hook is the villain of the show, he’s also a bit of a clown who just can’t seem to get what he wants. He has to be as treacherous to the Lost Boys as he is a complete wimp around the Crocodile. Cast a strong actor who can make bold choices.
Gender: Male
Vocal range top: E5
Vocal range bottom: B3

Smee
Smee is Captain Hook’s sidekick who wants nothing more than to see Captain Hook succeed in his evil plotting. Cast a young performer who is a solid actor and a great complement for Captain Hook. Gender: Male Crocodile Like Nana, the Crocodile is a silent part for a young performer who can take a leap and become the wickedest beast that ever was! Cast a performer who can fill the role with life and great presence.
Gender: Both
