Peter Pan open auditions to be held in London for new film
Boys of all ethnicities between the ages of 11-13 are being invited to audition
Filmmakers for the forthcoming Peter Pan film are to hold open auditions for the title role in London later this month.
Boys between the ages of 11 to 13 of all ethnicities are being invited to audition at Wembley Arena in London on Sunday 23 February.
Peter Pan is described by the filmmakers as “a courageous and adventurous orphaned boy living in a world of fantasy and dreams, which sometimes leads him into trouble.”
The film, titled Pan, will be directed by Joe Wright, whose previous movies include Pride & Prejudice, Atonement and Anna Karenina.
A website dedicated to the open auditions states boys must be a maximum 5 ft 4 inches (162cm) and must be available for the film’s production period in London from April until early autumn 2014.
The queue for the auditions will open at 9am on Sunday 23 February and close at 11am, with casting beginning at 10am.
The filmmakers have stressed that all auditionees must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian and cannot audition for the part if they arrive unaccompanied.
Keen young actors who cannot attend the auditions can also submit an online audition video on the film’s casting website.
