James and the Giant Peach Auditions for Kids

MEREDITH — The Winni Players Youth Ensemble is looking for kids ages 8-12 to audition for a play adaptation of Roald Dahl's children's classic, James and the Giant Peach. Auditions will be on Sunday, September 22 and Monday, September 23 at 4 p.m. with performances on December 6-8. Auditions, rehearsals and performances will all take place at the Playhouse's new facility at 50 Reservoir Road in Meredith.

The plot centers on a young English orphan boy who enters a gigantic, magical peach, and has a wild and surreal cross-world adventure with six magically-altered garden bugs he meets.

Rehearsals will be Sundays from 3-5 p.m., and Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-6 p.m. beginning September 25. Children wishing to audition should familiarize themselves with the story and parents should come knowing children's schedule conflicts for the audition sheet. There are speaking and non-speaking roles available, and families should consider in advance the size of the role the child is interested in. You need only attend one of the audition sessions.
