For vocal auditions, actors should provide musical director Beth Barefoot with sheet music. Vocal auditions will be followed by choreography and dialogue segments. Auditioners must take part in all three.

Adult men are encouraged to audition for the roles of pirates, Indians, Caption Hook or Mr. Darling. This is not a youth ensemble show and actors of all ages are needed.

With respect to the “flying” roles, those who audition for Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael, Liza and Jane must not be afraid of heights.

“Peter Pan” is produced by Karen Mayo and directed by Richard Martin; choreography is by Elizabeth Hansen. For more information, call Martin at 783-1828 or visit www.laclt.com.
