Peter and the Starcatcher

A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure.

Thank you to each and every one of you who auditioned for Grease. We so admire your bravery and hard work; you made this a difficult task for us all! Cast members will meet via Zoom at 4:00pm tomorrow for an informational meeting and preliminary sing through. Please check your email for important information. If you were not cast and are interested in helping the production on the technical crew, please attend the tech crew informational meeting on Friday at 3:00pm via Zoom.

Thank you for your interest in our spring production of Grease! Per district COVID guidelines, we were limited in the number of actors we could call back. If you don’t see your name on the list, please check the website again either late Monday night or early Tuesday morning as there is still a chance you will be on the final cast list.

The following students should plan to be in the theatre by 3pm on Monday, unless a virtual callback was indicated. We saw what we needed dance-wise from the initial auditions, so come prepare to sing and act. Please check your emails ASAP for important audition details.

Auditions for our spring musical, Grease, are quickly approaching. All preliminary auditions will be conducted virtually and asynchronously.

In the form, students will be asked to provide and prepare the following:

  • Student and parent contact information
  • List of potential scheduling conflicts
  • Agreement and compliance with both equity and health & safety standards
  • Videos of audition performance

For the audition, students will:

  • prepare a short acting side (either Eugene or Frenchy monologue – linked HERE)
  • sing 60 seconds of a song of their choosing (in the style of the show) or the selected cutting of “We Go Together” (sheet music and rehearsal/performance audio tracks linked HERE)
  • perform the prescribed dance choreography (linked HERE)

All preliminary auditions must be submitted by Saturday, March 20th at 5pm. After that deadline, the submission window will close, so the production team can review auditions and begin preparing for callbacks. The callback list and details will be posted on the Loft Stage website by Sunday evening.

Students will use the following Google form to submit their audition: Audition Form

* The audition form will not work using your school account. Please use this form only if you DO NOT have an alternate Google account: Alternate Audition Form.

Callbacks will be held in-person on Monday, March 22nd. A virtual option will be made available for students who indicate that preference on their audition form. Due to COVID restrictions, we can only callback a small group of students, so if your name isn’t on the callback list, there is a definite chance you will still make the cast list. The final cast list will be posted the evening of callbacks.

Hello All,

Thank you SO MUCH for auditioning. We where able to cast based on auditions so we have no need for callbacks and will begin rehearsal tomorrow.  If you were not cast please do not be discouraged. Please keep auditioning. If you have any questions about your audition please email Leah at
