Auditions are open for Beenleigh Theatre Group’s second 2022 mainstage production, ‘Peter Pan’. Directed by Bradley Chapman and Dominic Bradley.
About the Show:
First staged in 1904, ‘Peter Pan’ is a timeless story of magic, innocence, childhood and good form. JM Barrie wrote the play in response to the increasingly dark fairy tales that were popular at the time. It has been adapted countless times over the past century, and is a beloved classic worldwide. ‘Peter Pan’ is actually the story of Wendy Darling, who travels with the impish Peter to the Neverland to avoid having to face the perils of adulthood. While there, the children encounter mermaids, pirates and other dangerous denizens of the magical island.
This production aims to contemporise the story, and as a result we have made specific and deliberate changes to the context and characters, while still aiming to retain the heart and meaning of the original. This production will employ contemporary stagecraft, with heavily stylised moments of action. Cast members may be required to play multiple roles or operate puppets.
Initial auditions will be held on Sunday, 12 December 2021 between 10am and 6pm. You will be required to book a 10 minute audition slot. During your audition, you will have a chance to speak with the production team in detail about the show requirements and your preferred roles. You will be asked to perform the audition sides that are available on the BTG website. It is not expected that you memorise these sides, but you should familarise yourself with them so that they do not impact on your ability to demonstrate your performance skills.
If callbacks are required, they will be held on Monday 13 December from 6pm – 9pm. To book an audition, please fill out the audition form on the BTG website. You will then be contacted with your specific audition time.
Please view the audition pack for specific character breakdowns, bearing in mind this production does not follow traditional casting.
