Kids Wanted for "Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach"
The directors are searching for children to participate in "Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach." Please refer to the details provided below. About the project: When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach... and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach – among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities – but, after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks, and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building. Additional info: Sunday, December 3rd, Possible Callbacks.
