Peter Pan
September 24-25

Main Stage Musical

This holiday season, “just think of lovely things, and your heart will fly on wings” as Peter Pan returns to Quincy Community Theatre. The mysterious and ageless Peter Pan arrives in the Darling nursery, where he whisks Wendy, Michael, and John to the island of their dreams where no one grows old: Neverland. There, they encounter the island’s fascinating inhabitants, including a ticking crocodile and menacing pirates led by the dastardly, devious Captain Hook. Based on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale and featuring an unforgettable score, Peter Pan is the evergreen celebration of childhood’s joy and the sweet sadness of growing up. 

LOOKING FOR: STUDENTS ages 8 and up & ADULTS 18+.

Please be sure to schedule an audition and complete and print the audition form and bring it with you to your audition. You may also arrive earlier to complete a form at QCT.

If you intend to audition, please take note of the following:

  • The initial audition will be held as a 10-minute individual appointment in person at QCT.
  • Each person auditioning should come to the audition with a prepared song to sing, in the style of the music of Peter Pan. You are welcome to sing from the show, if you choose. If you only want a non-singing role, such as the animal characters, please note that with your signup.
  • A live piano accompanist will be provided; therefore, bring the sheet music of your audition song for the accompanist. A Bluetooth speaker will be available, if you would rather sing to an accompaniment track (no vocals on the track).
  • Following the singing of your song, you may be asked to do some additional singing, coached by the music director.
  • You will read selections from the script, which will be assigned to you at that moment. As the audition dates draw near, check the website and QCT’s social media channels for the specific pages that may be used. The script is not to be memorized for the audition.
  • A dance audition will be held on Tuesday, September 26. If you would like a dancing role, you should plan to attend this audition.
  • Some people may be asked to read/sing again on Tuesday or Wednesday, September 26 or 27 for what is called a “callback audition.” You will be notified if you need to attend this additional round of auditions.
  • Auditions will be held at QCT. Please enter through the QCT STAGE DOOR located off Kentucky street. This is the south side of the Oakley-Lindsay Center, and a ramp leads to the door labeled “STAGE DOOR.”
  • REHEARSALS: Rehearsals will be held anywhere between the hours of 6 – 10 pm, Monday-Friday. Actors may not be called for every rehearsal or for the full length of a rehearsal until the final weeks. Some weekend rehearsals may be required.
  • CONFLICTS: When listing conflicts on your audition form, please give exact days and times; we may be able to schedule around your pre-existing conflicts.
  • ABSENCES: Cast members are allowed two (2) excused absences from rehearsal. NO UNEXCUSED ABSENCES WILL BE ALLOWED.
  • Please note that no cast member may miss his/her scheduled rehearsal for any reason after Sunday, November 12.
  • TECHNICAL REHEARSALS: Before auditioning, please take note that technical rehearsals are scheduled for November 18-22 and 26. We intend to work around the Thanksgiving Holiday, but it will be necessary to be at these rehearsals if you are needed. The specific schedule will be announced the week leading into these days.
  • COSTUMES: You may be asked to provide supplementary costume pieces (such as undergarments and socks) and/or shoes.

Being a part of a QCT production is a HUGE commitment, but the reward is worth it. You will collaborate on a high-caliber, polished production! To achieve this, you will be expected to work outside of rehearsal on your lines; you will attend all your scheduled rehearsals and be ready to begin by the scheduled time; you will be willing to step outside of your comfort zone in rehearsals and try different things; you will stay quiet while another is talking; and show respect to every member of the PETER PAN company. Only if you can make this kind of commitment should you audition for this production.
