Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR., Shrek The Musical

Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR.

Based on one of the most quirky stories written, Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale! Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and witty script, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery, is destined to be a classic.

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that grows a tremendous peach, rolls into the ocean and launches a journey of enormous proportions! James befriends a collection of singing insects that ride the giant piece of fruit across the ocean, facing hunger, sharks, and plenty of disagreements along the way.

Auditions for Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach JR. will be held May 21 and 22, at 6:30 PM at the Stadium Theatre, located at 28 Monument Square, Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

We are looking for male and female actors between the ages of 8-18. For those auditioning, please prepare 16-32 bars of a musical theatre song that best shows off your vocal ability, and please bring sheet music as an accompanist will be present. There will be cold reads from the script as well as a dance portion so dress accordingly.

Rehearsals will begin in June 2018, and will be Sunday afternoons from 2 PM-5 PM, and Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 PM – 9:30 PM.

Tech week dates, which are August 19-23, are mandatory and cannot be missed.

Performance dates are August 24 at 7:30 PM, August 25 at 7:30 PM, and August 26 at 2:00 PM.

There is a $150.00 production fee to participate in this production.

Shrek The Musical

Set in a mythical “once upon a time” sort of land, Shrek the Musical is the story of a hulking green ogre who, after being mocked and feared his entire life by anything that crosses his path, retreats to an ugly green swamp to exist in happy isolation. Suddenly, a gang of homeless fairy-tale characters (Pinocchio, Cinderella, the Three Pigs, you name it!) raid his sanctuary, saying they’ve been evicted by the vertically challenged Lord Farquaad. So Shrek strikes a deal: I’ll get your homes back, if you give me my home back! But when Shrek and Farquaad meet, the Lord strikes a deal of his own: He’ll give the fairy-tale characters their homes back, if Shrek rescues Princess Fiona. Shrek obliges, yet finds something appealing–something strange and different–about this pretty princess. He likes her. A lot. But why does she always run off when the sun sets?

Auditions will be held Monday, June 25 and Tuesday, June 26 beginning at 6:30 PM, and will be located at the Stadium Theatre - 28 Monument Square, Woonsocket RI. *There is a possibility of callbacks on Saturday, June 30, beginning at noon.

All roles are open. We are looking for teens and adults, along with two roles for children ages 8-12. Anyone auditioning should prepare 16-32 bars of a song in the style of the show that best shows off their vocal ability. An accompanist will be provided. No acapella auditions, please. There will be a dance portion, so either dress comfortably or bring a change of clothes with you. Cold readings from the script will be required. Please bring an actor’s resume and headshot to the audition.
