Mix in a soothsaying cleaning woman, someone named Hootie Pie, a sweet young aspiring actress, and plans that could devastate the family, and you have the laugh-out-loud ruckus and Tony Award-winning play that will be a sure-fire audience favorite.

SYNOPSIS

A funny thing is happening in the town of Almost, Maine—a tiny little place so far north it’s almost in Canada and so informally organized it almost doesn’t even exist. On a cold, clear night in the middle of winter, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. With the northern lights dancing overhead, love is lost, found, and confounded in this whimsically endearing dream of love that the New York Post described as “Thornton Wilder crossed with The Twilight Zone.” Life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. It’s love. But not quite. We can’t quite make up our minds.

AVAILABLE ROLES

Act I

  • PROLOGUE / INTERLOGUE / EPILOGUE – Pete and Ginette, who have been dating for a little while. They are both a bit shy, nerdy, introverted. They are not big talkers.
  • HER HEART – East, a repairman, and Glory, a hiker. East is a confident, wise, and even-keeled man. Glory is slightly nervous, and vulnerable, but very self-possessed. They are both very honest and straightforward. They kiss four times in the scene.
  • SAD AND GLAD – Jimmy, a heating and cooling guy; Sandrine, his ex-girlfriend; a salty Waitress. Jimmy has a bit of the frat boy in him and in this scene he has already had a few beers. Sandrine is much more “together” by comparison. They broke up a while ago. The Waitress is very enthusiastic and busy. She may appear as if she’s had too much coffee.
  • THIS HURTS – Marvalyn, a woman who is very good at protecting herself, and Steve, an open, kind fellow whose brother protects him. Both are very kind, maybe a bit awkward and definitely vulnerable. They kiss one time in this scene.
  • GETTING IT BACK – Gayle and Lendall, longtime girlfriend and boyfriend. In this scene, Gayle needs to be really fed up with Lendall, and he is very surprised by her outburst. This is not typical of her.

Act II

  • THEY FELL – Randy and Chad, two “Country boys.” Two normal, average, all-American guys. They are best friends and have known each other for years. During the course of the scene, they discover they are in love with each other and literally become weak at the knees.
  • WHERE IT WENT – Phil, a working man, and his hardworking wife, Marci. A middle-aged couple who have been together for a long time. They begin the scene in denial and it deteriorates from there.This is the first time in a long time that they’ve expressed their real feelings to each other.
  • STORY OF HOPE – A Woman, Hope, who has traveled the world, and a Man, Daniel, who has not. Hope is figuring out her life’s path. Both will spend the scene reflecting on past choices.   They are both very sensible and kind.
  • SEEING THE THING – Rhonda, a tough woman, and Dave, the not-so-tough man who loves her. Rhonda is very enthusiastic, opinionated and a bit of a “bulldozer.” She could also be played as super awkward. Dave is cautious around her but also knows that if anyone can tell her the truth, he can. At the end of the scene, they anticipate, with anticipation, sleeping together for the first time. Overall, the scene is more comical and romantic than “sexual.”
  • EPILOGUE – Pete/Ginette

A company of a dozen actors plays more than a hundred unforgettable characters, all on a journey to answer the century-old question: How did Peter Pan become The Boy Who Never Grew Up? This epic origin story of popular culture’s most enduring and beloved character proves that your imagination is the most captivating place in the world.

AVAILABLE ROLES

  • The Black Stache – A notorious pirate, terrorizing the seven seas in search of a worthy adversary. Heartless, hirsute, and suspiciously well read. Partial to the poetical and theatrical, which causes him to behave quite flamboyantly.
    Male, 30-50 yrs old
  • Molly Aster – A young girl and Starcatcher apprentice who is taken aboard the Neverland as precious cargo. Curious and intelligent, she is only beginning to understand the confusing romantic longings that come with her age. She will risk anything for the sake of what is right.
    Female, 13-25 yrs old
  • Boy/Peter – A lonely and hardened orphan who doesn’t miss much. Nameless, homeless, and friendless at the beginning of the play and a hero by the end. He wants a home and a family more than anything, and dreams of a life of being free.
    Male, 13-25 yrs old
  • Grempkin – The schoolmaster of St. Norbert’s Orphanage for Lost Boys. Mean and malodorous, he revels in keeping his boys in the dark and malnourished. Optional Doublings include: FIGHTING PRAWN; MACK; SÁNCHEZ.
    Male, 40-60 yrs old
  • Mrs. Bumbrake – Molly’s nanny, a stereotypical British cad and outfitted with the duty of teaching Molly about womanhood. She still has enough charm in her age to attract a sailor or two. (Played by a man) Optional Doubling as TEACHER.
    Male, 40-60 yrs old
  • Bill Slank – The vicious orphaned captain of the Neverland. Does not possess the capacity to lead anyone but himself, which puts himself constantly in disaster. Greedy enough to send boys to their doom for the chance of gaining starstuff. Optional Doubling as HAWKING CLAM.
    Male, 35-55 yrs old
  • Smee – Black Stache’s first mate. He is single-mindedly dedicated to his captain’s every whim.
    Male, 25-55 yrs old
  • Prentiss – An orphan, ambitious, hyper articulate, and logical. He yearns to be leader, even when he knows in his heart that he’ll never be one. A bit of a blowhard with a touch of cowardice.
    Male, 13-25 yrs old
  • Alf – A seafarer, an old sea dog proud of his tenure. His kind heart gives him an appeal to the feminine sensibility.
    Male, 50-65 yrs old
  • Lord Leonard Aster – Molly’s father, a loyal subject to the Queen. The very model of a Victorian English gentleman, he is a faithful friend and a secret Starcatcher.
    Male, 40-60 yrs old
  • Captain Robert Falcon Scott – Lord Aster’s old school friend, the captain of the Wasp, Britain’s fastest frigate. Lives with nautical bravura and heroic patriotism.
    Male, 35-45 yrs old
  • Ted – An orphan obsessed with food. A natural performer with easy wit and quite poetic language.
    Male, 13-25 yrs old
  • Ensemble: Sailors; Seamen; Seafarers; Orphans; Pirates; Mermaids; Mollusks; Narrators
