PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Theatre Group seeks child and adult actors, musicians, backstage crew, technical support, usher staff and parent volunteers to participate in its upcoming non-equity production, "Peter Pan."

This production will be directed by Travis Daly, with music direction by Jacob Kerzner, and will run July 2-26 at The Colonial Theatre, 111 South St. Auditions will take place Monday, March 9, from 6 to 9 p.m. and Wednesday, March 11, from 6 to 9 p.m.The Colonial Theatre. Auditions are by appointment only. To schedule an audition time slot, call 413-448-8084, ext. 80.

The roles are open to actors of all ethnicities, second grade through adults. Student auditions will be held during the first two hours of each session, and the last hour will be held for adults. Adults should be prepared to sing 16 bars of a song and bring the accompanying sheet music that is in the key in which they prefer to sing. Students should come prepared to learn songs from "Peter Pan."

Callbacks will take place as needed. Rehearsals will start May 18 and occur approximately six days a week, including evenings, weekends (including some Sundays) and some weekdays. All rehearsals will take place in Pittsfield. Participants will take part in the 4th of July parade.

In "Peter Pan," Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the home of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travelers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook. Join Peter, Wendy and his famous Lost Boys as they soar across the Colonial stage and over the audience, among breathtaking and magical technical wonder.

Featuring the iconic songs, "I'm Flying," "I Won't Grow Up" and "Never Never Land," and a rousing book full of magic, warmth and adventure, "Peter Pan" is the perfect show for the child in all of us, who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up. Directed by Travis Daly ("Shrek The Musical," "Tarzan," "The Music Man"), this warm-hearted and beloved tale will feature more than 100 Berkshire youth. For more information, visit the website.
