PLEASE NOTE: We will be sending audition cuts based on the character you choose to audition form. You are more than welcome to be seen for more than one character, but not more than two, please.

SYNOPSIS: 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.

A delightfully offbeat adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl adventure, the creative possibilities withJames and the Giant Peach are endless. Actors will love playing the outlandish characters and performing brand new material from one of Broadway’s hottest duos.

ABOUT THE SHOWInspiration Stage will present Little Women the Musical based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested – her friend, Professor Bhaer, tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.

The powerful score soars with the sounds of personal discovery, heartache and hope – the sounds of a young America finding its voice.
iStage seeks a diverse cast of women and men to represent all gender identities and ethnicities.
From the Director: “This story is near and dear to my heart as a man who has been raised by such strong women with even stronger stories. My hope for this show is to cast a diverse group of actors, especially within the March family to represent multiple ethnicities and how each kind of woman fits into the fabric of society.”
