Cast announced for JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, Jr!

But first, a word from our director, Dave Hart…
It is always very difficult as a director to come to the moment when you must post a cast list knowing that you will disappoint any student actor. I truly wish I could cast each person that showed interest in our Studio 52 production of “James and the Giant Peach” however this story requires many unique characters with very specific needs.
Please know many factors go into casting, conflicts, vocal/dance abilities and which actors seemed to work best together. I can assure you that Alex, Dan and I have wrestled over and over to choose those we feel will best suit the entire production at this time.
If you have not been cast, please know you have still done a great job and continue to audition for every show you may get a chance to participate in.
I do know Studio 52 will hold auditions for its next spring production “Alice in Wonderland” on January 22nd and 23rd.
For more information on this production or to register for any of our spring semester classes please visit our website
My appreciation again to each auditionee.
Dave Hart
