Davidson Community Players’ The Connie Company Announces Auditions for James and the Giant Peach
Armour Street Theatre, 307 Armour Street in Davidson.
Actors need to only attend audition session.
Those interested should bring a recent picture, resume or list of theatre experience, and a list of conflicts for the February through April time frame. In all cases, auditionees should arrive at the start of the appropriate audition and plan to stay for the session. Auditionees will be evaluated and dismissed in groups. Auditions will consist of theatre exercises and cold readings from the script.
James – our young hero; from a downtrodden, lonely child, he develops into a brave “captain” of the insect band; he acts as a narrator too.
Old-Green-Grasshopper – elderly, genial, courteous, avuncular, musical (ability to play violin a plus!); he helps narrate
Miss Spider – occasionally sharp, even a little sinister, but ultimately kind; her marathon thread-spinning to help save the peach is truly heroic
Centipede – a sparky, cocky, warm-hearted Jack-the-lad
Ladybird – posh though not prissy, pretty though not vain, volatile though level-headed
Earthworm – not only blind, but a pessimist, a doom merchant whose standing in the group and whose self-esteem improves no end, thanks to James
