Children Invited to Audition for ‘Peter Pan’

Peter Pan-Captain HookCAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Dec. 5, 2013 – Children ages eight and up are invited to audition at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 14 in the River Campus Dance Studio, for various roles in the upcoming Southeast Missouri State University Department of Theatre and Dance production of “Peter Pan.”

Rehearsals will be held on nights and weekends starting Jan. 13. Those seeking a part do not need to prepare a song or materials, as a song will be taught to the children upon arrival.

With eight Tony Award nominations and three wins, this children’s story is filled with spectacle, laughs and the fun-filled escapades of Peter, Wendy and Tinker Bell as they struggle with Captain Hook and his pirates in Neverland.

Children will act, sing and dance alongside the department’s students in this family classic.

“Peter Pan” runs Feb. 26-March 2 in the Donald C. Bedell Performance Hall at Southeast’s River Campus.
