JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH
When his beloved parents are eaten by a tearaway rhinoceros, poor James has to go and live with his awful Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker. Imagine his delight when they are squished to death by a gigantic peach and James is transported on an adventure beyond his wildest dreams!
Emily Quash directs this year’s Young Production Company piece and is looking for a really energetic, zany, imaginative and hard-working cast to create a fresh and exciting new version of this bizarre and beautiful tale!

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR PARENTS AND MEMBERS: Playbox Theatre auditions are highly competitive (as is reflected in the whole world of theatre). Auditionees are scored in many different ways and the final ‘company’ is selected according to a range of specific criteria. We ask parents to support their children, and Playbox Theatre, completely and to acknowledge that these processes are selective and there is a high probability of a young person not being successful. Please help to manage their expectations and to be certain that it is right for them to audition at this time. Casting may take up to 4 weeks.
All cast must potentially be available to attend every rehearsal, and every performance. Not all cast will necessarily be called to every rehearsal but must be available. Please read the dates very carefully before coming to the audition as rehearsal absence is never permitted.
All rehearsals and performances held at: The Dream Factory, Stratford Road, Warwick CV34 6LE Tel: 01926 419555 www.playboxtheatre.com
