Audition: Gallery 7 Theatre for Peter and the Starcatcher

Wednesday, August 30, 2017 1:56 PM | GVPTA (Administrator)

Auditions for Peter Pan Prequel, Peter and the Starcatcher, Are Set for September 6th 

Gallery 7 Theatre is thrilled to be holding open auditions for its November production of Peter and the Starcatcher on Wednesday, September 6th at 6:30 PM at the theatre’s administration and rehearsal hall, #100 – 34595 3rd Ave, Abbotsford. The audition is open to all community performers ages 14 – 75.

A young orphan and his mates are shipped from England to a far off-island. On the voyage, they meet the precocious Molly, a Starcatcher-in-Training, who tells them that a certain trunk on board carries a magical cargo that must not fall in to the wrong hands. 

When their ship is attacked by the fearsome pirate, Black Stache, a thrilling adventure ensues where unwilling comrades unite and unlikely heroes emerge. This Tony Award-winning play explores the depths of greed and despair as well as the bonds of friendship, duty and love. It’s a perfect adventure for the entire family! 

Peter and the Starcatcher promises to be a wildly entertaining adventure for audiences,” says Executive/Artistic Director, Ken Hildebrandt. “The show also provides performers of all backgrounds and experience levels to really sink their teeth in to some really fun roles.”

Those interested in auditioning should be prepared to sing acapella, 16 bars of music from their favourite musical at the audition. Gallery 7 Theatre invites all those interested in working behind the scenes as assistant stage managers, running crew, technicians or as other production team volunteers to also attend the audition. 

Peter and the Starcatcher will be directed by John Trottier and will run November 10 & 11, 15 – 18, 2017 @ 7:30 PM with discount matinees on Nov. 11 & 18 at 2:00 PM at the Abbotsford Arts Centre, 2329 Crescent Way, Abbotsford. Rehearsals will commence the week of September 11.
