AUDITIONS: “Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach” Superior Arts Youth Theater

The Superior Arts Youth Theater will be holding auditions for their upcoming summer production of “Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach”. All auditions will take place at the Graveraet School, located at 611 N. Front Street, Marquette, MI.

Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand new take on this “masterpeach” of a tale. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.
