Inspired by true events, Trevor is a subversive comedy about fame, success, and the lies we tell ourselves in order to keep people from taking away an erratic, 200-pound chimpanzee. At the center of this hilarious and heart-wrenching play are two individuals fighting against a world unable to understand their love: Trevor, a chimpanzee who once performed in commercials, and his owner Sandra, who swears he would never hurt a fly… at least not on purpose. A moving exploration of family, flawed communication, and humanity.

Suggested for audiences ages 13 and older.

In the Spotlight

'Wendy Darling' Script Review June 8

Curtain Players has scheduled its first script review and audition for the 2017-18 season.

The community theatre’s script review for Wendy Darling is set for Thursday June 8 at 6:30 PM with the audition Sunday June 18 (registration at 6:30 PM, tryout at 7). Each event is at the 5691 Harlem Road (Galena OH 43021) playhouse.

Heather Schultz — who helmed Five Women Wearing the Same Dress and Zombies from The Beyond — directs this new unpublished script by New York playwright Ira Hauptman, receiving its first fully staged production September 8-24.  In Hauptman’s darkly comic version of the Peter Pan story, Wendy’s mother sets in motion a journey that threatens to change her family forever.

Because Wendy Darling scripts are not available for loan and purchase, Schultz plans to use the script review session for a complete reading of the script. The event is also an opportunity for actors to become acquainted with the community theatre organization, to discuss the play with the director, and to ask questions about the audition process, rehearsal period, and production plans. Those interested in working behind the scenes are also invited to attend.

Curtain Players conducts open auditions. Roles are not cast in advance. Actors are encouraged to be familiar with the script. Resumes and head shots are helpful. An early audition may be requested of the director. The request for an early Wendy Darling audition must be made no later than June 1. Questions may be directed to

Schultz provides the following character description for actors’ consideration:

Mrs. Darling – Mother of Wendy, torn between overprotecting her daughter in a futile attempt to keep Wendy young and encouraging her to live life to the fullest. As with most mothers, she rides the roller coaster of thoughts and emotions in making decisions in the best interest of her children. Actress needs to be able to display the internal turmoil and uncertainty.

Wendy Darling – Physically, she is age 12; however, emotionally, she is more mature that other girls her age. It is her youth that makes her a target for Peter Pan. Actress must be able to portray a young girl that changes to an older woman and back to a young girl vocally and physically.

Peter Pan – Peter is forever young, but is also immature, charming, curious, and slowly reveals a dark plan which shows the vampiric nature his selfishness feeds. Sword fighting experience a plus.

Captain Hook – When we first meet Captain Hook, he appears a bumbling fool still barking orders to his hapless crewman, Smee. But through continued encounters with Wendy, Hook begins to find his mean-spirited pirate self. Actor needs to be able to display comic timing, honest vulnerability and true meanness. Sword fighting experience a plus.

Smee – The abused sidekick of Captain Hook, Smee has been the biggest target of Hook’s bullying. But as the story unfolds, Smee has the opportunity to turn against his boss in evil glee.

Crocodile – He ate Hook’s hand and has been looking to finish the meal ever since, but does that mean he is a bad crocodile? (Puppetry)

Voice of Tinkerbell – This telling of the tale has Tinkerbell finding her voice.  (A voice over role. This part may be combined with that of the Crocodile and Peter’s shadow.)
