PETER AND THE STARCATCHER by Rick Elice, with Music by Wayne Barker
Directed by Amanda Marzo
Peter and the Starcatcher provides a humorous and fantastical backstory for the beloved character of Peter Pan and his arch-nemesis Captain Hook, in this wickedly imaginative play, we meet a poor orphaned child on the high seas. His world is turned upside down when he meets Molly, the daughter of a famous Starcatcher Lord Astor. From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes. Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan) and is a play with music, not a traditional musical that whimsically explores the bonds of friendship, duty, and love.
Female and Female presenting actors are encouraged to audition for any role regardless of gender in the description.

SCHOOL OF ROCK, THE MUSICAL
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Lyrics by Glenn Slater and Book by Julian Fellowes
Directed by Amy Baker Stout
School of Rock is a musical based on the 2003 film of the same name. The story follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn a quick paycheck by posing as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school. There, he turns a class of straight A students into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping, mind blowing rock band. While teaching these prodigies what it means to truly rock, Dewey falls for Rose, the beautiful headmistress, who also begins to see through him. In the end, Dewey is exposed, but his renegade teaching style has inspired his students to successfully complete in the Battle of the Bands.
Content Warning: mature language.
