CK's James and the Giant Peach Jr. (3 Week Camp)

Directed by Lauren Gurr
Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, 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 a witty and charming book, 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.

CreativeKids production camps require actors to audition so that specific parts are already assigned before we begin our camp rehearsals. Actors must be available for all performances in order to participate in a production camp. A typical audition includes reading from the script. Auditions may include an improvisational theatre game to see how well the actors interact with one another. Our goal at CreativeKids is to make the audition process non-intimidating and fun! All parents will receive an email Sunday evening the weekend of the auditions with a cast list for the production. Once cast, parents are asked to enroll their child in camp within two weeks to ensure their child’s part in the production.

Drop-off and pick-up in the carpool loop.
